Start-up / Scale-up Investment Due Diligence
Helping angel, VC and PE investors make a more informed investment decision.
A practical due diligence review to understand the current product, team skills and process to maximise the investment with a focus on customers and their needs.
Nine of the top 20 reasons for startup failures – and five out of the top 10 – were related to customers – not meeting customers’ needs, not listening to them or even ignoring them.– Forbes, May 2019
How it works
A series of interviews with the founding team and key employees focusing on, but not limited to:
- Customer / user needs research, process and understanding
- Product market fit
- Product vision, strategy and direction
- The market, competition and defensibility
- Product and technical roadmap
- Pricing, revenue targets and business model
- Measurement and KPIs
- Team roles, make-up and process
- Growth strategy
Together we can then develop a practical plan to make the right product and technical decisions at the right time to maximise time and investment.
