The right virtual dataroom can help investors streamline their due diligence process and reduce time spent, while establishing a sense of credibility and transparency among potential investors.

A VC will review a variety documents, ranging in content from financial projections and pitch decks to company-specific data and a variety of other business documents. Startup founders should focus on documents that meet the requirements of the VC for investment. Don’t include too many unnecessary documents that overpower potential investors and obscure important information.

To ensure that everyone has an excellent experience, it’s crucial that a VDR is equipped with advanced features, such as a search function that permits users to find files quickly and the Q&A section which facilitates communication between all stakeholders. A VDR should also be capable of handling large numbers without charging additional fees.

A VC should also have access to analytics that show who has accessed which files and when. This helps to provide the context for future discussions and investment. It is also important to choose a professional platform that permits free storage, and can upload large volumes of documents with watermarks. Carta Launch, an online doc management platform for early-stage founders, has all of these features and more, and is the ideal solution to manage the investor data rooms.
