When it is about raising startup funding each detail you provide can have a major impact on an investor’s impression and choice. It is essential to get this right. The process of securing funds can be a tangled process requiring detailed due diligence by all parties involved.

A virtual dataroom (VDR) can be a fantastic tool to help with the due diligence process. It makes sure that all important documents are available in one location and that investors can easily and easily access them.

The VDR creates a digital platform for startups to showcase an extensive, accurate overview of their business, helping speed up the entire capital raising process. Here are a few of the most important documents to be included in the startup’s VDR:

Investor Updates

Incorporating past investor updates into your startup’s data room can show that you take investor communications seriously and that you are willing to share information even after a first pitch. This also shows backers that you are committed to the due diligence process and are willing to resolve any issues that might pop up.

Team Details

Include the names as well as titles and salaries of your team members will help investors understand the company culture and see the vision that you have for the startup’s future. You can also include bios of your team members, along with a summary of each founder’s background and expertise.

A startup should consider including a copy of their investor agreement in the VDR. This is a great way to ensure that sensitive information and their IP from being disclosed outside of the due diligence process. By including a legal contract in the startup’s data room also ensures that all stakeholders are aware of what is being agreed to, which helps help reduce friction in negotiations.
