Need a Deal Memo written?

Do you have a potential investment you need assistance evaluating? Our expert team can assist by conducting Due Diligence and creating Deal Memos on early stage investment opportunities.

Our Standard Deal Memo examines the company in detail by looking into 6 key areas of the business. We then produce a comprehensive report that is approximately 20-25 pages long that outlines our findings after evaluating the venture. It typically takes an average of 10 business days to complete.

Due Diligence for Angel Groups

Often times, there is enough interest in a deal to warrant further Due Diligence within an Angel Group, but that interest means nothing if there are not enough volunteers to actually complete the work of bringing the Deal Memo to life. We have the background and expertise to fill in those gaps to ensure the Deal Memo is produced so that the right deals aren’t missed due to lack of participation.

As experienced leaders in the Angel investing space, we are familiar with the work required to perform thoughtful Due Diligence on early stage companies. Kelsey August, Founder of DealFlowNow, is a serial entrepreneur and super angel investor with over 7 years of experience on the Investment Committee for the Central Texas Angel Network (CTAN). In that role, Kelsey played a vital role in Due Diligence work that helped secure tens of millions of dollars for dozens of companies. Kelsey also served as the Board Chair of CTAN from 2019-2022.

Our deep understanding of the angel investing space enables us to supplement and streamline the Due Diligence process for Angel Groups. Let us take the headache out of evaluating startups for your Angel Group.

What exactly is covered in the Deal Memo?

The Deal Memo opens with an Executive Summary of the overall investment opportunity. The following 6 areas will then be investigated by our team in collaboration with the executive team of the company:

  • Team
  • Product & Technology
  • Competition
  • Market opportunity & Sales Strategy
  • Exit Potential
  • Financials

Why is a Deal Memo useful?

Startups, by their nature, are risky. When evaluating potential investment opportunities, it is important for Investors to take the time to thoughtfully investigate the business to determine its viability.

Taking the time to mitigate risk by conducting proper due diligence impacts investor returns. A study conducted by Wiltbank and Boeker looked at data from over 538 angels in 3,000 investments to determine the impact the amount of due diligence had on investor returns. The results are eye-opening, but not entirely surprising:

“More hours of due diligence positively relates to greater returns.”

The study also revealed that the overall return multiple for angel investors who did a significant amount of due diligence was the following:

5.9X for greater than 20 hours of due diligence

Needless to say, due diligence plays an important role in the overall investment process, which is why it is important to approach it thoughtfully.

If you need assistance vetting an investment opportunity, let us help. We can take on the 20 hours of work needed to evaluate the company for you.
