An Entirely New Take on Tech & Product DD
As part of our in-depth analysis, Code & Co. rates the target’s technical, product-related, and organizational capabilities. While technology is all about "hard facts", product is about knowing what "not" to build (and "why"). And engineering – arguably the most important (and most easily overlooked) aspect – addresses the team and internal processes.
Code & Co. is proficient in two languages: business and tech. Our years of professional experience as developers, product leaders, and entrepreneurs have honed our tech capabilities. 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 many more.
All this acquired expertise helps us determine what really matters. We benchmark a target’s achievements against today’s best practices. If necessary, we offer actionable insights and a roadmap to help the company get up to speed.
