A CoMotion Event: Fundamentals for Startups: Preparing for Due Diligence — What comes after “yes” and before the check?
January 22 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm
Founders need to be prepped and ready for the due diligence phase of investment where investors will ask for documents, projections, references and more. You also have an opportunity to get some background on your investors, but what should you ask? In this session, expect to cover the basics about “due diligence” as well as best practices and common pitfalls.
