The Four Phases of Venture
The second phase, interaction with investors,
starts with the first contact with prospective investors.
It ends long after the closing. Your company’s methods of
communicating with investor prospects can make the difference
between success and failure.
Phase 2 - Investor Interaction
(Slide 34 of 50)
- The method of contacting investors should be
personal, when possible, and direct. Introductions help
differentiate your plan from others.
- Negotiation begins with the first contact,
while investors are still sizing up their interest in investing
and evaluating the sophistication of the company’s management.
- The company’s diligence investigations of
investors should continue through to closing.
- Management’s mastery of the company’s
reasonable business plan projections and competitive issues can
drive up valuation.
