Let’s heal the Earth through food

As the AgriFood space continues to heat up and more capital flows in, having a clear value proposition around what you offer as an investor, great relationships to the ecosystem, and a solid reputation will differentiate you and attract the deal flow you’re looking for.

This is where I come in.

I work with corporate venture arms and single-family offices to identify opportunities for investment and build relationships to the ecosystem.

I offer four phases of service starting with ecosystem mapping and opportunity identification all the way through to matchmaking and support with due diligence to close the deal.

Former Clients Include:

Ecosystem Mapping

We start by defining your vision and values as an investor in the future of food. We review your relationship to the ecosystem and approach for attracting deals to identify new opportunities for connection. This service includes:

  • Map of your existing ecosystem relationships that act as a source of deal flow
  • Identification of new opportunities for ecosystem connection
  • Review of your digital footprint and attraction strategy for attracting your ideal startups and co-investors

Deal Sourcing

Sometimes you know exactly what you’re looking for, but don’t have the time to research and meet all the startups around an investment thesis you’re developing. Analisa can find and vet deals that match your search criteria. This service typically includes:

  • Creation of a lead list of of 100-300 startups that match your search criteria for an investment area based on geography, funding size, solution, etc
  • Report of trends amongst the startups surfaced and a scorecard for evaluating and narrowing down the opportunities
  • Handover of a Top 50 Lead List with recommendations for how to proceed with each of the startup opportunities

Venture & Partnership Matchmaking

We do financial, legal, and tech due diligence, but what about personal due diligence? Following the Deal Sourcing phase, Analisa will conduct “personal due diligence” to see if a startup team is a good fit for your portfolio and further define the opportunity. This service includes:

  • Analisa acts as an “opportunity bouncer” taking the first meetings with the Founders to see if they are a good fit
  • Down selection to 10-20 investment and/or partnership opportunities that are vetted and summarized with a clear plan for next steps
  • Internal Demo Day to introduce Founders that make the cut to your team and other key stakeholders

Due Diligence

If you fall in love with a deal, Analisa will help to prepare the investment memo for the investment committee to get it across the finish line. This can include:

  • Drafting or collaborating on writing the investment memo
  • Coordinating with the startup to make sure all relevant materials are in the data room
  • Sparring and relationship management through the due diligence process

What Clients Are Saying:

Analisa worked with our disruptive innovation unit for almost two years. She helped us make sense of different investment areas and map the ecosystem to identify different opportunities for investment, partnership, and builds. She supported to identify startups, ask the right questions and ultimately close an investment in a strategic area.  She is pragmatic in her approach, effective, and a pleasure to work with.
