OpenUp: Document Fundamentals for Funding
Due diligence for startups can seem like a daunting process. After all, you want to make the investors comfortable enough to invest in your company.
From an investor perspective, investing has a significant amount of risk on the possible likelihood for a return or not. It is only fair that those who invest get access to the key company documents so they can assess the level of risk in addition to truly understanding your business.
Before you begin fundraising, best practice is to immediately take good care of the documentation that runs your business. All documents are fair game when it comes to being reviewed by investors. And, the more sophisticated the investors are, the more they will ask to review before determining their investment into your company.
This webinar discusses document best practices for funding diligence, and what you can prepare in advance before speaking to an investor.
If your company is selected to participate in the BoomStartup AmplifyUp funding program, your company will be expected to provide several documents to us and to prospective investors.
This educational webinar is hosted by an attorney and is designed to help founders who are considering fundraising in the next 3 – 6 months so they can prepare the necessary business activities to ensure a fast funding close by reducing the collection and organization of their company’s paperwork.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Marc Rasich, Partner at Stoel Rives, a leading nation-wide law firm based out of Salt Lake City, Utah, will walk through document fundamentals.
Marc will dive into the due diligence process, what is a data room or a diligence package, and the agreement types that should be available for investors to review. Marc will also explain how investors look at these documents and ask questions about the author, and why you should have agreements ready to go, what agreements to have ready for investors, and what investors are looking for.
This is a presentation with an open Q&A at the end.
