Typically 4-6 weeks.
After our initial conversation, we will provide a strong indication of next steps within 14 days or less. This conversation is crucial for us as we decide quite quickly if the people within the firm and its culture fit our founding principles.
If there is a fit, we begin due diligence by asking you for your past financials (annually), current year financials (monthly) and pro forma statements for the next 5 years and personal, professional and customer references.
When there is no fit we will discuss with your leadership team what can be done to become a fit in the future. We can even help you find another investor that does fit your company should you want that kind of help.
