- What to expect from our Due Dilligence Process: 1) First, our team will conduct an initial screening on all applications made through Gust. 2) If the company meets our initial criteria, our team will invite the company in to give a pitch/ presentation (15-30 minutes). 3) During the pitch, our team will be asking questions and getting feedback 4) If our team is interested, we will move into Due Dilligence. 5) During Due Dilligence, a DD team from RVF will be assigned to meet with the company, get questions answered, get relevant documents/ financials, and ultimately make a recommendation should RVF like to invest. 6) If RVF is confident in the recommendation, we will move into making a proposal and negotiations. 7) Closing the deal!
