RVC Academy: Due Diligence
by Thought Leader: Peter Adams, MBA,

For both investors and entrepreneurs

Due Diligence is the process that investors undertake when evaluating whether they should invest in a company or not.  This is one of the most critical phases for BOTH founders and investors because deals can be made or broken by what happens here.

Investors Learn how to:

  • Determine the key items to look for in due diligence.  (Attendees receive our 100 point checklist)
  • How to work with other investors in a team to conduct due diligence and tap into sector expertise from group members.
  • What red flags to watch for in the process.
  • How to syndicate with other investors, VCs and angel groups.
  • Research patents, corporate history and individual background checks.

Entrepreneurs learn how to prepare themselves for the due diligence process:

  • What documents need to be collected and in what format?
  • Why does due diligence take so long?
  • What are the things you should have done to get your organizational house in order, but haven’t gotten to yet?  (Better to do them BEFORE due diligence starts, since they can take time)
  • How to keep momentum and investor interest going on your deal through due diligence.
  • The phases of due diligence – what happens at each phase?
  • ·How to deal with protecting “secret sauce” and trade secrets during due diligence.
