When our members have indicated there is sufficient interest both in terms of investment and wanting to participate in due diligence, we kick off this process:
What is due diligence? This is a comprehensive appraisal of the opportunity undertaken by a team of Enterprise Angels members, to verify and fully understand the various aspects of the business and evaluate the risks and potential benefits.
We will provide details of the process and what you will need to provide, generally in the areas of:
- Corporate organisation
- Real property, plant and equipment of the business
- Intangibles of the business
- The industry
- Marketing and distribution
- Products and technology
- Other contracts and commitments
- Management and employees of the business
- The offer
We will arrange a meeting with a team of 4-6 members, yourself and other key parties to agree a process, roles and timelines – typically 2-3 weeks.
You can either share a previously prepared dataroom with us, or we will set this up for you and get you to upload the required information.
When the various sections are complete, we will compile a draft report and provide for your feedback.
Due Diligence Review Meeting
When you are happy with the report we will arrange another meeting with interested investors so they can gain a full understanding, and you can answer any further questions they have.
After Due Diligence we will work with you to agree a term sheet which forms the basis of the legal documentation required for settlement. We will work with you and your lawyers to finalise this.
