Technical Due Diligence
Angel investors and venture capitalists ask me to do technical due diligence on their future investments. A typical technical due diligence is:
- A thorough 2-3 day process, including up-front preparation and product testing, on-site visit with interviews and systems check, and final report and de-briefing.
- A broad look at a startup including team, process, technology, usability and market fit
My report not only covers potential red flags but is often included as milestone planning in the shareholder agreement.
