What We Believe In

In our experience, the success of a tech company is heavily dependent on practical yet scalable tech decisions, a strong focus on its users and a well-executed engineering culture. We consider the reality of the dynamic, fast and stressful life-cycle of a startup and the simultaneous need for engineering excellence and user experience best practices. We offer both vendor and seller due diligence to venture capitalist firms, private equity funds, and strategic investors.

TECH & PRODUCT DD

We were hired to perform a Technical & Product Due Diligence to assess the products, code, team, and potential leading up to a Series A funding round of $10m.

Our Framework

Every tech company addresses challenges in its own way; we consider and address the following universal factors that are crucial for continued success: past decisions, current processes and the road ahead, vetted against industry standards.

We deliver a comprehensive visual analysis that details our key insights so you can make informed and confident decisions.

Our proven framework gives a clear assessment of status and potential. We adapt our framework for each project, yet the foundation remains the same, allowing us to benchmark against previous projects.

Our Framework | Technology

  • ARCHITECTURE & INFRASTRUCTURE

    These are the real foundations of growth and they are expensive to adjust. Operation and maintenance should come at manageable cost.

  • PLATFORM SCALABILITY

    Scaling a product comes with its own set of challenges and should be tackled with a thought through contingency plan.

  • SECURITY & EMERGENCY PLAN

    Companies must minimize the risk of data loss and have an emergency plan at hand to maintain their customers' trust.

  • CODE QUALITY & TEST AUTOMATION

    The goal is to write tested and extensible code that people can implement efficiently and enjoy working with.

  • DOMAIN & DATABASE DESIGN

    The heart of software is its ability to efficiently solve and persist domain-related problems expressed in abstracted concepts.

  • TECH DEBT ANALYSIS

    Taking smart shortcuts is reasonable but when done in excess they make things significantly more complex and hinder future growth.

  • ALGORITHM REVIEW

    Is the company's highly advertised secret algorithm actually smart tech or just an army of interns equipped with Excel and a phone?

Our Framework | Product

  • KPIS & PRODUCT METRICS

    These are the real foundations of growth and they are expensive to adjust. Operation and maintenance should come at manageable cost.

  • PRODUCT ROADMAP & VISION

    Scaling a product comes with its own set of challenges and should be tackled with a thought through contingency plan.

  • UX & CONVERSION RATE

    Putting the user first is everything. Companies need to help customers understand the true value their product delivers – fast.

  • BRAND & VISUAL DESIGN

    A brand is the sum of all experiences a user has with a company. It makes or breaks the loyalty of a user base.

  • PLATFORM AUDIT

    The heart of software is its ability to efficiently solve and persist domain-related problems expressed in abstracted concepts.

Our Framework | Engineering

  • ENGINEERING PROCESSES

    Software engineering is an agile and highly collaborative team effort. How can it be further optimized?

  • KNOWLEDGE SILO IDENTIFICATION

    Is key knowledge well-distributed and documented or can it suddenly disappear with the departure of critical employees?

  • HIRING ATTRACTIVENESS

    A company's culture and tech stack are advantageous when seeking out and retaining the brightest brains.
