Due Diligence Mistakes

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

There are several mistakes one can make in the due diligence process.

Here are a few points to check:

Focusing on every potential risk in the deal and not the primary risks.

In this case, diligence turns into a never-ending slog with no endpoint.

Many CEOs are successful entrepreneurs who did well elsewhere and are now working in a new area. 

The CEO must be experienced in the domain of the startup.  

Does the company have real traction in the market?

It’s often the case they have a few key customers who jump-started sales, but there’s no real momentum.

Will customers buy the product in sufficient numbers?

The market demand must be great enough to grow the business. 

Does the team have a focus on the exit strategy?

Make sure the team knows their exit and has a strong sense of it. 


Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
