Focusing On What Matters
Our tech & product due diligences identify tech and product opportunities and real risks that impact asset valuation and accelerate growth.
Advice That Adds Value
Our tech and product due diligence audits identify opportunities that accelerate growth and risks that threaten asset value. We are an independent advisory firm specializing in advising funds in the global alternative investment industry.
The technology and product due diligence that we offer is both modern and holistic, and it spans the entire investment life cycle, from outside-in audits and confirmatory due diligence to portfolio audits, exit preparation, and vendor due diligence. Thanks to our in-depth knowledge of the tech and product sectors, the advice we provide is comprehensive and specific.
We are based in Berlin, Germany, but we work with exceptional private equity, venture capital, and hedge funds all over the world, including the USA and Asia.
How We’re Different
We guide our clients by sharing our extensive technology, product, and sector knowledge. We provide global investors with cross-functional, hands-on expertise to assist them in making confident, forward-looking investment decisions. We understand that success is not linear but truly believe that the future is malleable.
An Entirely New Take on Tech & Product DD
We deliver in-depth analyses of a target’s technology, product, and engineering capabilities: While technology is all about hard facts, product is knowing what not to build (and understanding the why) and engineering deals with the team and processes – arguably the most important (and most easily overlooked) part of tech and product due diligence.
As a company, we speak two languages: business and tech. Our technological capabilities are validated by the experience we have gained by working for many years as developers, product leaders, and entrepreneurs. This expertise enables us to deliver insights that really matter. As entrepreneurs, we have scaled tech companies from whiteboard to dozens of countries. As builders, we have delivered software that is used by multinational corporations in FinTech, e-commerce, marketplaces, and much more. We benchmark a target’s achievements against today’s best practices and, if necessary, provide actionable insights and a roadmap to help the company get up to speed.
Our Ever-Evolving Framework
Our proprietary, tried-and-tested framework ensures we provide real, actionable recommendations. The framework is improved upon with every job we deliver, and we seek regular feedback from and are constantly challenged by industry experts to guarantee that the framework is in line with exactly where our ever-evolving industry is headed.
Services, Data & Software
Our technology and product due diligence reports offer in-depth findings that are based on deep technological knowledge and the wealth of experience we have gathered by delivering operational excellence for many years.
We also use in-house software to further augment our own findings. Our in-house software enables us to deliver data-driven insights and benchmark targets against industry peers and global best practices. Thanks to our proprietary software, we can leverage advanced data and analytics to uncover deeper quantitative insights. It also allows us to deliver even better work, faster.
We put our money where our mouth is. For select deals, we offer our clients co-investment so that we can help companies to succeed. We offer smart money and actively assist in creating accelerated, sustainable digital value.
