Initial Evaluation

Founder Time: ~5hr

Timeline: a few weeks to a few months

Initial evaluation is completed by the AVP team, which is typically 1-3 initial meetings with an AVP team member and founder, completed over the course of a few weeks.

  • If we think you are a good fit and the timing is right, we’ll schedule you to pitch at our next upcoming monthly pitch meeting.

  • If we think you are a good fit but the timing is not right, we’ll let you know and have you keep us updated on the company / fundraising progress.  Once the timing is “right”, we’ll re-engage and re-evaluate at that time.

  • If it’s not a good fit, we’ll let you know as well.  We believe in quick no’s when needed.

Pitch / Follow Up

Founder Time: ~5hr

Timeline: 45d Pitch to Closed

Companies selected to pitch will pitch, in person, at a monthly pitch meeting.  Pitches are typically 4-5min, with 15min of Q&A.

Members will then demonstrate interest to the AVP team.  If enough interest exists (expect to have >$100K commitments), 1-2 follow up calls within 1-2 weeks of the pitch will be setup. 

Members will then submit firm commitments to the AVP team. If >$100K in commitments exist, an LLC will be setup and the closing process will begin.

Post-Investment

 

 

 

Following investment, the AVP team believes in the Hippocratic Oath:

 

  • First do no harm...

  • Then help

 

We expect ongoing CEO company updates (monthly/quarterly) that we will share with the members so our team and your new community of investors can help support you, but will not be heavy handed. 

 

You’re the founder. 

 

We’re the support.
