Security and tracking are essential when thousands of pages of highly confidential documents are handled by dozens of people during an investment transaction. A professional-grade virtual room should be encrypted, provide digital rights management and granular reporting. This includes when and who documents are accessed or printed. Caplinked’s enterprise VDR solution offers this feature to safeguard documents throughout the investment deal process even after they’ve been downloaded.
A good checklist for an investor data room should include a section on your team (resumes and stock options, as well as other documentation about current employees). Then, add a report detailing the company’s market research or public reports that demonstrate an understanding of the industry and your position within it. Finally, include an analysis of your competitors that demonstrates how you differentiate yourself from other companies operating in the same space.
This information will give potential investors a first impression that you’re organized and prepared to tackle any due diligence question they may have. Your effort will be appreciated by VCs and they will be more likely to move quickly.
You want to work with an entity that treats your business with the same care that you do. By presenting the information in a comprehensible user-friendly manner it will make it easier to streamline the process of negotiating an investment deal and impress potential partners. A platform that incorporates short messaging and commenting functionality is an excellent way to speed up the review process and cut down on the friction of communication.
