What is the Notion Startup Fundraising Template?
This template offers a wide range of different tools, guides, and resources gathered, for the very first time, in a single product.
This Notion template is a unique "from A to Z" fundraising template nobody else is offering.
It accompanies your fundraising process from the beginning to the end. You might be wondering how it accomplishes to aid you through the whole process. Let me explain it to you.
Tool No.1: The Fundraising Guide
To get a first overview of how a complete fundraising process looks, we have written this comprehensive Startup Fundraising Guide.
However, this guide is not just for reading. It is interactive. It challenges you to think deeply about if you genuinely need an investment, if you are in the position to get an investment, and if yes, shows you what you have to prepare to get funded.
Topics from this Guide:
- Why are you looking for capital?
- Who is the right investor for your startup
- The pitch deck
- Design Tips
- The term sheet
- The due diligence
- Investor relations
Tool No.2: Investor CRM
The investor CRM helps you to keep track of all your investor relations. Document all conversations, negotiations, and stages of your investor relationship in this easy to use CRM.
Tool No.3: Pitch Deck Content Creator
Get a full understanding of which content you need to include on each slide. Use our guidance to collect all the necessary information you need to know to create your pitch deck's content, which you can then directly document in this tool.
Tool No.4: Pitch Deck Feedback
Investors aren't searching for reasons to reject your pitch. Instead, they're looking for a solid reason to invest.
We encourage you to ask for feedback from every investor who sees or reads your pitch deck. With the help of this tool, you can structure, prioritize, and manage the feedback.
It's not uncommon for entrepreneurs to have a totally different--and highly improved-pitch deck at the end of their fundraising efforts.
Tool No. 5: Due Diligence Checklist
The final stage of a startup fundraising process is due diligence ("required carefulness"), an audit of your startup's performance.
Having a due diligence checklist allows you to prepare all the needed documents for your investor, which will immensely accelerate due diligence.
Tool No. 6: Investor Update
Every investor wants you to send him a status update from time to time. This update gives him a detailed overview of your startup's current metrics, your high- and lowlights, what your focus and objectives are right now, and how many sales you had.
Tool No. 7: Investment Memo
An alternative (or addition) to your pitch deck can be an investment memo. It is a clear and precise articulation of your company and clarifies why it is a good idea to invest in your company.
Tool No. 8: Captable
This tool enables you to create a simple cap table for your next funding round.
Tool No. 9: Resources
With this collection of 50+ resources, you can learn more about raising funds for your startup. We also included a list of our favorite tools.
Tool No. 10: FAQ
Throughout your fundraising efforts, investors will ask you many questions you won't be able to answer straight away. From our experience, it is a good idea to collect the most common ones and have a well-written answer to use anytime.
