Initial steps upon receiving investor emails

What to do when getting investor calls?

Investor research:

  • Utilize the investor database to gather information about the investor.
  • Determine their role e.g., are they a partner with decision-making power?
  • Review feedback from other founders and understand the types of deals the investor typically engages in.
  • If clarity is lacking, don't hesitate to seek advice from the CapitalxAI team.

Investor relationship management:

  • If the investor aligns with your interests, add them to your Investor CRM (Customer Relationship Management) system.

Responding to investor outreach

If considering early fundraising:
  • Schedule meetings a week after you complete your fundraising preparations.
Declining interest tactfully:
  • If you decide not to pursue funding from a particular investor, politely defer the conversation to a later time.
