After meeting initial due diligence requirements and upon subsequent Stateline Angel Board determination that there may be member interest in a particular business opportunity, the entrepreneur(s) seeking capital may be allowed the opportunity to briefly present their business plan to the general membership. The goal of such a presentation is to give the membership an executive overview of the investment opportunity so that the Stateline Angels can then determine if there is sufficient member interest to merit continuing due diligence and analysis. To assure the initial presentation is focused and consistent with member expectations, we suggest presenters cover the items in the following outline:
