a proven methodology leads to a predictable outcome

1. Investment Thesis & Data Mining

Your investment thesis is the guiding beacon for the analysis. Automated data gathering quickly brings first insights. A targeted questionnaire is sent to fill the holes in the data room.

2. Interviews and First Findings

A carefully crafted checklist quides the scan of the target’s people, processes, and software. It is conducted through carefully structured interviews and automated code analysis. An intermediate readout presents first findings and aligns on next steps.

3. Interlocks and Deep-Dives

Synchronization with other due diligence streams (legal, commercial, etc).  Targeted deep dives into specific focus areas to create deeper understanding and validate hypothesis.

4. Consolidation and Readout

Connecting the dots and distilling findings into actionable, practical recommendations that serve the interest of both investors and the target companies.
