Recommend a Deal

Most TBD Angels deals are sourced directly by our members or have some level of connection with our members. One value we can all create for each other is in bringing dealflow to the group.

  • We do not currently have a specific thesis, but group generally prefers US-based startups in the early-stage (seed/pre-seed) with a technology lean.
  • These remain soft criteria because we want to be open to opportunities that might not align exactly with our portfolio but are great founders, ideas, markets, etc.
  • If an opportunity might not make sense for you, it might resonate greatly with other members.
  • Recommending a deal does not mean you need to lead the deal or even invest in the deal

Know of a great founder, team or opportunity? It only takes 5min to which will put the opportunity in front of the rest of TBD Angels!



Lead a Deal

Do you want to engage with entrepreneurs and fellow TBD members? Leading a deal involves helping shepherd a deal throughout its lifecycle from initial pitch meeting to the closing

  • Deal Lead Playbook: Detailed steps involved with leading a deal through the investment process
  • Deal Lead Quick Checklist: Quick set of steps for members experienced in leading deals
  • Deal Lead Training, May 21, 2021 (Pitch Video || Deck): The process team provides a full walk through of the deal process with Q&A. Recommended for anyone who has or might want to lead a deal
  • #tbd-deal-leads: Ask questions about the deal leading process in this dedicated Slack channel
  • Sample diligence questions: This includes some common questions. Feel free to use these as a baseline in your conversations with the founder. Suggest additional questions if you have some!
  • Example Deal Memos: Feel free to use any of these past deal memos as a template for the investment brief that you'll share with the membership
  • Outside investors: Our deals often include 1 or more investors who are not members of TBD Angels as part of an effort to increase the TBD participation in the deal, to include more value-add investors on the TBD investment, and/or to allow a founder's individual minor investors to be part of our SPV.
    • Deal leads can issue an invitation to the deal in our portal (Send invitations from the tools tab of the deal page)
    • Mill have access to just that deal and will not have visibility to the names of TBD investors, but will be able to review the deal, access deal material, vote, provide feedback and make commitment
    • Must be accredited
    • Can live anywhere in the world
    • All investors on the SPV (TBD members and invitees) share the various SPV costs pro-rata (approx $4000 -- SPV platform fees, blue skies, etc) and up to 5% carry
