A data room is an online space that enables startups to share their most important information with investors, including financial documents, legal documents and other pitch materials. It streamlines the due diligence process by allowing investors to quickly and easily access the information they need to decide whether to invest in a startup.

Investors are often under pressure to make due diligence and funding decisions. The ability to gather all the information required to make a choice in one place can help accelerate the process and prevent misunderstandings. A well-organized data room that is easy to navigate will ensure that all parties have the information they need.

There are a variety of factors that determine whether a startup should have an online dataroom. In general, the larger the deal and the more sensitive data that is involved, the more likely for a startup to require an online dataroom. Startup founders should prepare their data room prior to the start of discussions on fundraising, regardless of the size or nature of the deal.

Founders can include information on the team and leadership of the company in the data room, which includes the resumes of key team members and documents regarding employee stock agreements. They can include a comprehensive analysis of the competitors, and highlight their product’s worth and its position in the market. A section that highlights the customer’s references and recommendations can also help to build credibility with potential investors.
