What we want for you

happier places to work scaled

If you’re like most of our clients, you’re a high-achiever. You’re ambitious and determined, and approach every investment opportunity with a healthy mix of pragmatism and intuition. It’s an approach that has served you well.

But, you’re also cautious. You’re not out to take unnecessary risks. You want to make smart, well-informed decisions based on accurate, highly-relevant data and evaluations.

You want to understand everything about the companies you’re looking to invest in, so you can invest with confidence.

We want that for you too.

But, due diligence can cost the Earth, right?

Yes, it can! You can pay six-figures to get your tech due diligence done, but
we believe you shouldn’t have to. Our comprehensive packages start at £10K.

Your due diligence shouldn't be left to a junior, with a checklist. We're a team of hands-on techies with decades of experience designing and delivering technology for global organisations in various industries.
You shouldn't need to be a tech geek to understand your reports. Our assessments and evaluations are detailed but easily comprehendible. We speak plain, everyday language.
Your due diligence should be done quickly and efficiently, with no compromise on quality. We offer fast, highly-tailored services, so you can enter every deal with a clear strategy, vision & road map.
Our contracts include a definitive scope of work and are outside IR35.

We understand what success looks like for you!

Our clients work with us because they want a comprehensive understanding of the tech, people and processes behind the businesses they’re looking to acquire. They want to know the risks and limitations, as well as the opportunities and untapped potential for growth.

We help you gain the crucial understanding you need to minimise risk, prepare for the unexpected and invest with confidence.
