Your First Startup: From Idea to Angel Investment
Picture this: You have had that aha moment. You have decided to solve that pain that you have personally experienced and know deep down that others would be willing to pay to get it solved as well. Your gut can sense that you have the most elegant solution to the problem. You can already hear the millions of happy customers raving about your product, the knocks on your front door from VCs desperate to share in your company’s growth and even smell the unicorn status that your company has achieved.
..Snap back to reality, oh, there goes gravity.. - Eminem
The first thing you need to know about being a startup founder is that it is not easy. Once you take the plunge, there would never again be an ordinary day in your life.
In this book, we dive into the common mistakes that first-time founders make and what you can do to build a sustainable business.
The Startup Due Diligence Checklist
Most startup founders (especially first-timers) approach funding without really
understanding the process. While all startups work really, really hard to make a difference,
very few focus on becoming fundable. It is important for founders to focus on building out
all areas of their company and not just a beautifully designed hollow slide-deck & a great
elevator pitch. Almost all VC firms and some super-angels have inhouse due- diligence teams
or consultants that systematically comb through a new investment opportunity.

Most due-diligence consultants have their own playbook by which they operate – a checklist
of sorts – to ensure they do not miss out on any crucial areas of the business. It is such a
playbook that we would like to present to you through this book. We cover the different
areas of a business that we look into such as business model & strategy, product management,
technology, customer support process, marketing & sales. By sharing with you common
questions that we ask when doing due-diligence ourselves, we hope to shed light on this
process and provide you with a framework on how to build an investible company, regardless
of whether you will continue to be bootstrapped or have already raised a round previously.
