  • Will I be the only angel in a deal?
    All members invest on their own but collaborate on due diligence and setting terms for the investment. Your investment or your decision to invest is not tied to other members of Keiretsu Forum. Because companies can seek investment across the Keiretsu network you may collaborate with members in other chapters to complete diligence and negotiate a common term sheet.
  • What happens post-presentation? How can I participate and/or observe a deal?
    It is important to indicate your interest level in a particular deal on the Gold Sheets provided at each Forum meeting. Keiretsu chapter managers consolidate all comments and interest levels to share with the entrepreneur. Members who are interested in a particular deal are connected so they can collaborate on due diligence and term sheet negotiations.
  • How do members collaborate on deals?
    Keiretsu members collaborate on deals in two ways: Due Diligence. A lead Keiretsu member is chosen to champion the due diligence effort along with other members interested in a particular deal. This lead coordinates the other interested members and delegate due diligence responsibilities following the Keiretsu Due Diligence Platform. The lead will ultimately consolidate the information into a final due diligence report. This report is then shared with all interested parties to inform their investment decision. Term Sheet. Members of the Due Diligence team then negotiate favorable deal terms with the company seeking funds. This term sheet is then shared with all members considering investment.
  • What is the structure of a typical Keiretsu deal?
    All members invest on an individual basis and are not part of a collaborative fund or limited partnership. However, members generally invest into one term sheet. The term sheet is generally negotiated by the group of angels who are leading the due diligence process, along with input from the rest of the participants. Companies in syndication (multi chapter investment) arrive at the region with a full due diligence report and term sheet in hand.
