About our Knowledge Base

The key2investors knowledge base was created to provide instant answers to many questions we have heard quite often over the last years. During numerous workshops on the investor process, negotiations, or startup valuations, as well as coachings, online sessions, and process guidance we collected the frequently asked things and put the answers in our knowledgebase. Now it is accessible and continuously filled with additional questions startups have around this topic. If you want to ask your own questions and get them answered, send us a message, we are here to support and expand the collection on the go for everybody.
