The nice part about this template is that it’s not just a generic sales and marketing deal flow template adapted for venture capital. They actually put some thought into the types of data and pipelines needed in the industry. For example, the template includes deal tracking by round and stage.
Unfortunately, this template is quite tailored to venture capital use cases, as opposed to corporate development or M&A (where acquisitions are usually the primary goal). However, if you’re willing to put in the work, we found that it is possible to edit and customize the fields in this template to make it more applicable for non-VC use cases.
As you’ll find with most deal flow templates, they are generally quite limited when it comes to document storage and built-in automation (although some enable you to create your own automations). Spreadsheet.com is no different in this respect.
Overall, for those who love spreadsheets and work in venture capital, this is a solid choice for a deal flow template. At the time of writing this, Spreadsheet.com is free for teams of up to 5 people, including 1,500 rows per workbook (think 1,500 leads to track). For $7 USD per month, you get an unlimited number of users and 10,000 rows per workbook.
