What is the process for identifying new deals and how are they diligenced?

We actively source deals from our network of co-investors, public companies, founders, and academics. Additionally, our Analysts identify potential investment targets.

Companies go through a rigorous due diligence process, including discussions with the company, reference calls, financial modeling and are being scored on ARK’s proprietary five scores, people management and culture, product leadership, barriers of entry, ability to execute and thesis risk.
