Supporting tools and content

Supporting these programs we have a variety of technology, content, methodologies, and processes. The tools and content include:

  • Metrics: This is our metrics program that supports measuring companies both initially and over time to reflect progress. It supports investors making decisions about initial and ongoing tranches, identifies milestones for progress over time to support ongoing funding, and provides a basis for comparison across and within companies, divisions, and investment areas.

  • CashFlow: This is our business cash flow simulator. It provides simulation-based analysis and graphical output of projections of future performance across variations of parameters. In addition to identifying how much funds will be needed when, it takes account of the envelope of future performance, which tightens over time as companies gain more experience and allows for larger entities to project the effects of multiple investments on cash needs and return times.

  • Gigs: This system helps track work with clients. Each portfolio company has its own set of activities that are projected forward in time and tracked to assure we meet time frames and don't forget anything we are working on. It also produces a record of interactions and progress over time for historical review and allows our advisors and clients to more efficiently recall the particulars they need for each meeting.

  • JDM: This is our tool for working through due diligence issues. It manages scores of different issues, providing structured mechanisms for providing current state and projected future details, helps to identify and quantify risks and rewards, and provides a framework for presenting information to investors and investor review of details on companies.

  • Former: This tool is used, among other things, for angel/advisors to evaluate companies presenting to our fora and provide feedback to companies. It is used real-time during Goto Angel and at other times to map into due diligence reporting and provide triage on opportunities.

  • Others: We have other tools used to help make better decisions, analyze special situations for plans of action, mature companies, track progress, and act as interim tools for companies which have not yet developed internal processes and tools to support repeatability, documentation, and management of their processes. These are applied as/if needed on a case-by-case basis to help portfolio companies and other clients.
