What should I check before meeting with investors?

Check out their website, their blog, their podcast – whatever you can do to learn about them and their investment thesis. And most importantly – check out their portfolio – you can see what portfolio companies you complement and if there are any direct investors. If there are – you don’t want to meet with them. They will not invest in you and you might end up divulging valuable information to a competitor. DO NOT go unprepared! Be ready for a question like “Why do you think you are a good match for me/us?”
