What is Due Diligence?
Due diligence is a process where buyers verify a potential deal or investment opportunity to confirm all relevant facts and financial information, and anything else that is a part of an M&A deal or investment process. Due diligence is always done before a deal is concluded and closed to provide the buyer with an assurance of what they’re getting into. The process further validates the buyer/investor’s decision to pursue the opportunity in question – whether it’s an M&A deal or a startup investment.

Investment Due Diligence for Startups
Investment due diligence normally begins after a letter of intent or term sheet is issued by an investor. Usually at this point, a team is engaged to conduct the exercise based on certain rules of engagement agreed between the investor and the company. The end product of the exercise is usually a report that is compiled and presented to the investor with recommendations of potential additional terms and conditions required in the transaction.
There is an 87-item long list of due diligence documents that a startup needs to hand-in once a letter of intent has been issued by the investor. It can be a tiresome and exhausting exercise for an entrepreneur who has thousand other things to manage. This is where we come in.
