A data room provides a professional environment for document storage managing and sharing. Cloud solutions are available from traditional providers like Quoroom, iDeals and Docsend through to niche providers that are tailored to specific industries or needs of business. A reputable provider provides templates tools, tools to organize and manage files including multi-user access, communications tools, permission settings and custom analytics. Selecting the right software for your needs will help you minimize risks and time, reducing costs and increase internal transparency.
During major events like mergers and acquisitions as well as capital raising, there’s often a large amount of information to be reviewed. This data may contain sensitive information that if leaking could result in damage to the company that is involved. A secure physical or virtual data room allows interested parties to look over this information without divulging sensitive information, or putting the deal at risk.
When determining the best way to establish your investor data room it is crucial to keep in mind that each business is unique and requires different documentation. However, there are some basic documents that are crucial for most companies. These include your Confidential Information Memorandum, your cap table (a breakdown of who is the owner of what percentage of the company), Board resolutions, milestones and important customer contracts. These will help to give investors a full picture of the company and speed the process of raising funds.
