For the questions to ask VCs, is it all right to ask them exactly as they’re phrased here, or is it usually appropriate to soften the language and be a little less direct sometimes?
The organization of this roundup is great. We love that it’s split into question you need to prepare for, and questions it would be appropriate to ask in return. We like, too, that it mimics the actual flow of a conversation, moving from broad overview questions to more specific, nitty gritty inquiries an interested VC would need answered.
This checklist delivers exactly what is promised, and does it in a pretty thorough fashion. But if we had to make a suggestion for how to improve, we’d love to see some pointers sprinkled in. Tips on things like how to best answer big questions, details that make sense to be left out, or different spins you can put on your answers.
