Some investors will tell you after spending time with an entrepreneur they know in their gut whether to invest. But for many, reliance on instincts is simply not enough. These investors will embark on a comprehensive review of the company, called Due Diligence, to consider whether to invest in the start-up.
Due Diligence is simply gathering additional facts which you can consider before making a decision and includes reviewing aspects of the company such as Leadership Team, Sales and Business Model, and Exit Strategy.
While Due Diligence does not de-risk your investment it will allow you to determine whether the company meets your personal investment thesis.
