"The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn't said."
– Peter Drucker

With 100 million new businesses created and 70 million shut down worldwide each year, buying and selling startups and their technology is common practice.

Each company and each transaction is different: they all have their own motivations, targets and risk profiles. One thing they all have in common: every transaction requires careful inspection and evaluation. Whether you are a private equity firm, investment bank or acquiring company, you'll have a set of objectives in mind prior to investment. Performing technical due diligence to evaluate the product, architecture, processes and organisation helps ensure that those objectives are met.

We recognise that technology teams do far more than the tech. It is ultimately about people: they determine whether change is adopted or fails, and it is only through collaboration with each other, clients and partners, that changes can become lasting improvements.

Bunt as your technical due diligence partner can:

  • Identify organisational and technology risks
  • Organise interviews with each stakeholder and key member of staff, to tease out misaligned motivations
  • Analyse software licenses and technology providers
  • Find resource gaps, technology and organisational bottle necks
  • Validate any of the assumptions the investment firm made regarding scalability or any other aspect
  • Help you understand the strengths and weaknesses of any technology used
  • Provide analysis on return of investment
  • Identify the right business metrics to measure performance
  • Guidance through knowledge transfer, and establish integration pipelines
