We all dream of creating the next big thing, getting that investment that will help get us over the finish line, landing the partnership with one of the big players, getting acquired by one of the global giants.

We all dream of creating the next big thing, getting that investment that will help get us over the finish line, landing the partnership with one of the big players, getting acquired by one of the global giants.

But as we race to innovate, stay ahead of the market, and surprise our customers with bigger and better offerings than they even imagined, we have to pass that dreaded series of hurdles: technical due diligence.

Technical due diligence is an investigative survey performed by prospective investors during the pre-investment stage of a product or property. This assessment aims to provide insight into the costs and risks involved in the acquisition or sales transaction.

Analyzing and evaluating the technology, product, architecture and processes in an organization prior to the acquisition of a company or an investment in it.

Who should do technology due diligence?

At the risk of being self-serving, we recommend a current or former CTO and entrepreneur. It’s very important that this person has served as a senior individual contributor for many years, is not overly opinionated about solutions and architectures, has seen many successful and unsuccessful ventures, is intellectually curious, thinks pragmatically and knows that there exist many great ways to build a successful technology company.

More importantly, you want to hire someone who can explain technology to a non-technical person and someone you can trust. So don’t just count on the individual’s track record as a technologist or entrepreneur based on company outcomes, do their references and probe specific areas that will serve the needs of the due diligence process.
