1. Initial vetting: 30-45 minute introductory meetings with either one of our DeVC collective members or the DeVC team.
2. Rapid follow ups: Post our introductory meetings If we are able to build some early conviction and are keen to partner with you, we’d follow through with upto 5 meetings with a few of the DeVC collective members. This enables us to learn more about your thought process, while we are always moving towards a decision. We’ll typically make some reference/diligence calls through this period
3. Final decision: We discuss all opportunities as a group once every 10-14 days and partnership opportunities which are through the follow up process can expect a final answer from us within 1-2 days from our most recent huddle.
These are some general steps every founding team goes through. While we strive to move at pace to get from intro to final answer in less than 14 days, sometimes developing a relationship might take longer.
