The whole platform has been designed around you; to be as simple and intuitive to use as possible. Uniquely at FounderCatalyst, your whole journey is powered by your secure Intelligent Data Room. All of your documents and forms are held there.
First, sign up for an account to start creating your free term sheet and to access your Intelligent Data Room. Don't worry, the term sheet is not legally binding, but any potential investor will expect to see the terms you are offering in this format.
Next, you need to enter your company's details and information about your funding round. Once this is completed, you can view and download the term sheet from your Intelligent Data Room.
You then decide who can access your Intelligent Data Room. Importantly and uniquely, your Intelligent Data Room allows you to upload supporting material such as a pitch-deck, business plan and financial models. Once you are ready to do so, you can invite investors to review this information.
For your protection and as part of our automated process, any potential investor you invite onto our platform must sign a binding Non-Disclosure Agreement before they can view any of your sensitive business information. They must also sign an Investor Disclaimer. Once they have signed, you are automatically notified.
When all of the legal documents have been agreed and everyone is happy to proceed, your final documents are produced and stored in your Intelligent Data Room. You and your chosen investors then electronically sign all of the documents. You will be automatically notified once signing is complete and your legal journey for the fundraise is at an end. Congratulations!
