 Due Diligence

by Marc Averitt

I thought I'd post on due diligence since folks seem to be curious as to what it is, how much to do, and where it fits into the whole venture ecosystem. This will be a steady-stream-of-consciousness so please forgive any typos, etc. To oversimplify, due diligence is the process in which a fund decides whether it will make an investment in a particular company and I will include some generic items for consideration later in this post. The earlier the stage of company, the more "art" than "science" there is in analyzing whether to make an investment but most early-stage funds follow the guidelines below to one degree or another. The other aspect of due diligence is often left unsaid, despite the fact it is equally important — the due diligence entrepreneurs SHOULD perform when deciding which fund they would like to work with and whether they want to partner with a particular fund that may have expressed interest in investing in them. It is, after all, a two-way street and both VC and entrepreneur will be essentially "marrying" for the next few years (exceptions/divorces aside).

 Due Diligence Binder

by James Chen

The reason this topic is important to me is that more and more I am seeing entrepreneurs and start up companies who really don't have the first clue as to how to go about obtaining funding. They have piqued the interest of some investors, but they do not know what the next step is. They may have heard the term "Due Diligence" but they really don't know exactly what it means or how it is conducted. Every venture firm or angel investor will have (should have) his or her own protocol of conducting due diligence. I have seen as formal a process as a due diligence worksheet where the company is scored on various metrics. Or as informal as a group of partners giving a company the thumbs up or thumbs down. With angels, I have seen it as simple as a discussion over a cup of coffee.
