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.

Our Framework

Every tech company addresses challenges in its own way. However, we consider and address the following universal factors that are crucial for continued success. We assess past decisions, current processes and the road ahead. We deliver a comprehensive visual analysis that details our key insight so you can make informed and confident decisions.

We build, use and offer proprietary software solutions to streamline processes and gain better insight in order to offer value beyond a one-time assessment.

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?

Product

KPIS & PRODUCT METRICS

KPIs help define and measure progress toward business goals and often tell two sides of the same story. We help you uncover their meaning.

PRODUCT ROADMAP & VISION

An ability and willingness to innovate continuously and in a structured way are essential to meeting the demands of a growing user base.

UX & CONVERSION RATES

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

Is the company finding the right users? Can it expand and address future platform dynamics?

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.
