When venture capital teams help clients with fundraising rounds, closing deals on time is crucial; emerging companies depend on the capital to grow their business and pay employees. When these transactions involve countless signers, multiple closings, and unique versions of closing books for each investor, legal teams lose valuable time managing the signature process, tracking voting thresholds, and creating closing books.
4 Major Pain Points in Venture Capital Transactions
Controlling Due Diligence
The size of venture capital deals does not typically warrant the purchase of a traditional virtual data room. As a result, sensitive documents are shared through less secure manners.
These deals can have a massive number of signers. Identifying all signers, creating pages, sending and tracking packets, and creating final versions consumes a lot of low-value time.
Creating Custom Closing Books
Different versions of closing books need to be made for each investor set. This process becomes more time-consuming when there are several closings for a single transaction.
Juggling Simultaneous Projects
Legal teams are often dealing with numerous venture capital deals at the same time, making it difficult to track the status of all deliverables.
