Deal Memo

An investment deal memo is a document that summarizes the startup and the opportunity behind it in a concise, single-page format.

It's typically used by investors, startup scouts, and even startup entrepreneurs themselves during the fundraising process.

When bringing a deal, a deal memo can provide context for you and the investors when looking at opportunities. Specifically, it provides context for the major assumptions behind your model for success, what is driving those assumptions, and how you will know if they are correct or not.
