Are you about to invest in a company? A Technical Due Diligence is an important part of most Merger & Acquisition processes – especially if your target company’s core business is software-related.
Startups and scaleups are often attractive targets, but they can also be challenging. There can be a lot of turmoil in early-stage startups, staff turnover tends to be high, and the technical debt tends to increase as the code base gets more and more complex. These things can all prove costly further down the road.
A Technical Due Diligence is a way to avoid surprises, mitigate risks and gain full insights before you invest. Our service is semi-automated, cost-efficient, unbiased, and quick. The whole process takes about ten working days and the findings are visualized in an easy-to-understand report – and you can be more confident that your investment meets your expectations.
