Itโ€™s time to quantify your pipeline!

Innovation is global and the best companies to invest behind can come from anywhere. At
, we invest in growth-stage companies in the US, Europe, and China. With one fund and a global team, we strive to be efficient, collaborative, and data-driven in our work and decision-making.

Over the last year, we have been augmenting our investment workflow by developing a quantitative VC platform that we call Q. Q is an in-house predictive AI platform that can scan, rank, and highlight over 700,000 companies, and signal which ones within our investment themes are trending, based on more than 300 different growth indicators. With Q, we discover the most promising companies in real time, reduce decision-making bias, and monitor market developments.

Like many other investors, our business used to run on traditional spreadsheets and documents. Spreadsheets kept track of companies we met or followed, industry taxonomies lay buried in slides, and our communications with companies were siloed in individual partnersโ€™ email accounts. But since we believe the future of venture capital is data-driven, we decided to bring these disparate parts together in
Coda
and connected it to Q.

This is the pipeline management part of our Coda implementation - we are sharing this as a published doc to help you organize your investment process. We hope this template helps you automate your own investment workflow. Ping us on
