Founder-investor vows

We are muddling through

  • What information do they want regularly outside of board meetings? How often and in what format?
  • What events — good and bad — do they want to be immediately notified of?
  • What is the minimum return they expect to consider their investment successful? When do they expect an exit?
  • How willing are they to lead or invest in the next round? What milestones do they want to see achieved to do so?
  • What do they think would be grounds for replacing you?
  • What value-add do they expect of you? Do they expect this from you constantly or only on request?
  • What outcomes, personally and professionally, would they consider successful?
  • What are their greatest strengths and weaknesses? Do they know and agree with your view?
  • How are you helping them improve on or mitigate their weaknesses?
