Key Documents for Your Due Diligence Box

Key Documents for Your Due Diligence Box

May 25, 2020 by investor

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso — your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

You’ll need to gather your basic company documents for investors to review.

In preparing a due diligence box also called a dataroom, there are basic documents to include:

Income Statement and Balance Sheet

Three to five year financial forecast

Cap Table including shares outstanding

Entity filings (LLC or C-Corp, etc) including Articles of Incorporation

Intellectual Property filings including patents, trademarks, etc.

C-level team resumes

Most early-stage companies don’t have lawsuits, years of tax returns, and other baggage that comes with time. 

There may be other documents you may need to add based on your situation.

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
