We partner VC/PE/Growth Equity firms in due diligence from customer experience and market understanding perspective. In addition we help them identify new market spaces through proactive research.

A mix of codified routines along with vast experience is what we bring to the table

Some of the questions we can help you answer

  • Are you investing in a large high growth market?
  • Is the competitive landscape suited for your investment?
  • Is a genuine customer problem being solved?
  • Is the product/service adding enough value to customers to generate long term profits?
  • Are you getting what you intend to invest in?
  • How is the company positioned against competition?
  • Robustness of processes and infrastructure?

We understand that efficiently evaluating winning investment proposals is critical to your success. Our team has been at the forefront of developing processes for due diligence from the customer and the market perspective.

In any due diligence process you can not ignore a simple fact: a significant amount of knowledge resides with the customers, not in financials. The experience of the customers and their expectations are critical to success of the firm at the scale which makes sense for the investment.
