I read it (am on my firm’s IC)

Are you talking about sell-side CIM's?

I definitely read those.

IC memos - sometimes I feel like they’re just a “check the box” to cover our butts in case an LP asks us why we invested in “Toiled Paper as a Service startup X”

Of course!

OP, dont you as a team go through the memos and discuss the key points in the team meetings before a go/no go decision?

No - this is an IC memo.

We present all our IC memos live to the IC and basically go thru page by page for like 60-90 min and discuss in depth. Feel like if you are just submitting it and waiting for a rubber stamp with no feedback that y'all have some uncapped risks floating around...

I assume rollover does not equate contribution. Any experts here can please help? 🙏
