Meet the Outset team
Sometimes you send us your pitch deck, sometimes you’re introduced to us by community member, sometimes you just cold email us. Our first meeting will be between you and one of our core team. This will be an informal conversation about what you’re building, and who you and your team are.
Meet some community members
If we like your technology and your vision, we’ll set up a few follow-up meetings. You will meet with one or two of our community members who has knowledge about your area, so we can dig a little deeper into your venture and understand how you see it growing.
Prepare for the investment committee
We’ll help you refine your pitch and tell the story of your venture well. This is also when our due diligence process starts, and we’ll walk you through what we look for. Any major roadblocks to investment will be worked through during time.
Pitch to the investment committee
If all goes well so far, we will ask you to pitch to our investment committee. This is usually in person, but sometimes via video works well, too. This is a chance for the committee to get to know you, your team, and your venture, and give useful feedback based on their experience and expertise.
Complete due diligence and investment documents
If it’s a yes from the committee, we’ll start working on a term sheet for you, and complete any last due diligence work. Once that’s agreed upon, we’ll finalise the full documents. We will also go out to our investor partners if you’re interested in having others join the round, or provide you with introductions to other investors we work with.
Once that’s all done, we’ll celebrate having you join the Outset whānau!
