Technology Due Diligence
Full technology assessment
Whether for internal evaluation or as part of an M&A process, fast-growth companies seeking investment need to demonstrate the current state and planned future of their underlying technology.
A detailed audit of your current technology
What’s in place, what’s working, what isn’t
This is one of the first steps we take: a snapshot of where you are now, and where you want to be. We work through the plans you have and the problems you aren’t currently solving.
The investment process
An essential part of understanding
Due diligence is an essential part of the investment process to enable all parties, buy- and sell-side, to understand:-
- Current technology systems and shortcomings
- Ongoing maintenance issues and investment requirements
- Scalability and performance
- Opportunities and risks – existing and future
- Uniqueness and defensibility vs competitors
- Recommendations and changes required as a result of any investment, acquisition or merger
