Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
There’s a quantitative side and a qualitative side to due diligence.
The quantitative side includes checking the list of documents in the data room to verify the accuracy of those documents.
For example, do the entity filings match what the company said they have?
Do the intellectual property documents match what they claim they have?
Then there’s the qualitative side of diligence.
This includes evaluating the team and the growth prospects in the market.
Sizing up the competition and the company’s ability to execute.
An analyst or assistant can help with the quantitative side as it requires basic research.
The qualitative work requires a higher degree of discovery and should be done by those with industry experience.
Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.
