Data Rooms and Capital Raising

Data rooms are believed as a useful tool for companies that are being acquired, but also offer great benefits to companies raising capital. As a central place to organize, share, and managing the critical documents that investors need to review in their due diligence process and a virtual Data Room allows you to accelerate your fundraising and boost confidence in the performance of your business.

It can be difficult for founders to decide on the information they should include in their investor data room. While the requirements of each business will differ slightly, the majority of investors will require the same things. We've put together this checklist of documents that you should include in your investor data rooms, along with some suggestions on how to organize them.

A short introduction to your pitch deck - a PDF of your pitch which can be stored in the same place like your other documents is the perfect way to quickly engage with investors. It's also a great opportunity to show that you take investor communication and transparency seriously.

The inclusion of past investor updates proves that you've always taken their feedback into account, and are willing to share with them even when the results have been difficult. These updates not only demonstrate your ability to cope with the challenges of life, but also build trust with your investors. The ability to track your data in your Data Room helps you to monitor which investors are engaged with the documents and how long they're spending in each folder. This will give you a better idea of how serious investors are about investing and give you the information needed to make a good decision.
