Venture Capital: How It Works

Silicon Valley has given birth to many high-tech innovations, new trends, and standards. It is home to many well-known venture capital firms. It is often used as the reference for “how to raise” venture capital. But every proposition has its own DNA and hence its own ideal “venture deal”. Ensuring we have an accurate understanding of the company’s DNA: founders, management team, value proposition, secret sauce, financial position, markets, and customers, we determine what is needed for getting you ready for a venture capital round. During the Departure process, we support and guide the team towards developing the complete package, including the pitch. Once the Departure work is completed, it is time for the actual engagement. Here is where the rubber meets the road – you are ready to engage with the VCs and you have all the relevant answers and materials to back that up. You can profile yourself as an ambitious and winning team with an unbeatable product/services and business model. The next milestone is the negotiated and accepted term sheet. From the term sheet, we guide the process through due diligence to the final shareholder’s agreement (SHA) and stock purchase agreement (SPA) all the way to the closing dinner.
