Six companies will be invited to present in person to the joint Selection Committee between 1pm and 5pm on the first Thursday of the month. If invited, companies are given a seven-day notice prior to their meeting with the committee. If their company is not invited, they will be notified accordingly.
At each Selection Committee meeting, two to four companies will be selected to present to the three angel groups. Companies that pitch well but for whom there are no further slots for presentation to the investors that month may be scheduled in the following month..
Following the presentations, interested investors from all three angel groups will meet with you during the 2-3 hour Deeper Dive meeting scheduled the following week. These Deeper Dive meetings will take place from 2 PM to 4 PM from Monday to Thursday. When applicants receive their invitation from the Selection Committee, they will be told the date for their Deeper Dive meeting. The meeting will be hosted by the angel group with the largest number of investors interested in the company. Investors from other angel groups are expected to attend in person to that initial meeting but accommodations will be made to include all interested investors.
To facilitate due diligence (DD) efforts, applicants should have a secure data room with DD information to be shared with investors interested in their company. Google Drive or Dropbox are recommended for hosting the data room. A DD checklist will be provided.
Due diligence prior to closing a deal normally takes two months. Applicants can accelerate the process by having all information readily available and by being responsive to the needs of the due diligence team. If applicants are unavailable to participate in an active due diligence initiative, they may wish to reconsider applying for funding until they can give the activity their uninterrupted attention.
Applicants must upload a copy of their investment pitch deck.
