Step 0: Screen
With very few exceptions, we read all incoming email regardless of the source. Our primary objective is to determine if there’s a fit to our investment rubric. Where that appears not to be the case, we decline the opportunity immediately.
If, on the other hand, there appears to be a fit, we dig deeper. For example, we review any attachments (we need to see a deck and/or an executive summary), look at LinkedIn and Crunchbase, and check the company’s website. If you’ve been referred, we’ll reach out to those folks at this point as well.
We endeavor to screen every pitch we receive in ten business days, and usually get it done in fewer than five.
