We mitigate technology risk for venture capital and private equity firms, and companies looking to invest in, merge, acquire or restructure, by helping them to instantly understand the strategic value of the transaction.
What are the challenges that VCs and PEs face when investing in technology startups?
Our value proposition
We provide an independent analysis and validation by trusted experts of the target company’s IT scalability and security, software quality, quality of technology team, reality of technical roadmap, data processing efficiency, peer comparison, technology risk and opportunities – helping investors instantly understand the strategic value of the transaction.
Post-transaction, we can help with delivery of services and provide the needed flexibility, speed, and quality of IT development.
For more mature invested companies who’ve seen their management team disappear, we can engage as interim IT department.

The end result
Validated Analysis Report
Based on our proven Functional Blueprint report we deliver understanding of the key milestones that the startup needs to achieve to stay on the flight path.
We engage in an independent, unbiased assessment and are not driven by specific startups goals or business impact. We provide a clear, outsider view on what the IT landscape reality is and will dedicate the needed time to do the assessment thoroughly.
We hold 20+ years of IT development and delivery services and have been trusted by many large enterprises in the UK. With dedicated experts, whose sole focus is on the due diligence (and not also on running an IT department), we save the investor from this risk.
Startup domain knowledge
We know the culture of start-ups and scale-ups, and we can understand the business quickly. We have experience across different sectors with particular knowledge of FinTech, Data tech, and Biotech.
