Marlon is one of those precious few people with an uncanny ability to see where the optimal value exists as well as the more difficult to find “hidden” risks. A rare, intuitive investor/entrepreneur.

It's common for investors to promise a healthy engagement with a startup's challenges, but rare are those who manage to balance support and pressure in a way that creates value. This is exactly the balance I get from Blue Impact.
  • We do not currently lead investments; however, our commitment can generate interest from other funds who may lead.
  • Our investment process helps you prepare for lead investor discussions, please reach out to us before or early on in your capital raising process.

  • We will act in the best interest of your company.
  • We will respect your time and will not ask for material we do not need.
  • We will let you know if we have competitors in our portfolio.
  • We will not share confidential information without your permission.
  • Please let us know if we are not honoring our commitment.

Step 1: Fill out the PITCH US form, this allows us to save time and speed up our process with basic information about you and your company.

Step 2: We will review the information you provide, and if it fits within our criteria, we will reach out to you to schedule an introductory call, please review Prepare to Raise Capital below.

Step 3: After internal discussions we will decide whether to proceed, if we do, we will schedule follow up calls with you and your team.

Step 4: If we are inclined to make an investment, we will request due diligence materials and may request other due diligence calls.

Step 5: After due diligence, we make a commitment to invest, or decide to pass.

Prepare to Raise Capital

For introductory calls, investors usually schedule 30–45-minute meetings. During this meeting you should cover the basics, please make sure to address the following questions in about 15-20 minutes, so you can leave 15-20 minutes for Q&A: 

  • What’s the problem?
  • What’s the solution you have you developed for this problem?
  • How’s your traction in the last few months? What are the key metrics?
  • What’s the market opportunity? How do you position vis-a-vis the competition?
  • Who are the founders and key C-levels?
  • How much are you raising and what will be the use of capital? What’s the valuation?
  • If investors are interested, they will schedule follow up calls to learn more about your product, sales, go to market strategy and unit economics.
  • After, or in parallel, investors will request access to the data room as part of their due diligence process.
  • At this stage investors want to check that everything that was presented is backed up. This includes meeting other team members, references, financials, contracts, etc. This step is even more crucial given today’s remote working environment. Lead investors and many co-investors will request this information, so it’s important to set this up sooner rather than later.
  • We suggest you set up a data room that you are ready to share with interested investors, here is a list of documents you should include in your data room.
    • Full investor deck
    • Competitive landscape analysis (if not in the deck)
