What our clients say?

"I see a growing need for data due diligence.  DataDiligence's findings enabled us to make a faster, more informed investment decision."

Managing partner

"While developing a data strategy and roadmap for one of our portfolio companies, DataDiligence addressed the technical requirements to ensure the right data was current, accessible, and usable across the organisation.

But more importantly, they provided guidance on the interplays between the company’s business and data strategies and highlighted the business opportunities related to the data itself.  They clearly articulated the resulting company strategy and used simple yet comprehensive frameworks to identify and communicate capability strengths and gaps. Then they even supported implementation of the associated interventions, including recruitment of a new exec to drive development and implementation of the digital strategy. 


DataDiligence’s recommendations are based on strong analytics, backed by deep cross-cutting experience, and delivered with hands-on and enthusiastic professionalism."

Five due-diligence questions every investors should ask 


How much does the target’s underlying data ecosystem play into value creation, today and in the future?


Are we investing in data & AI due diligence proportionately to the perceived value?


Do we have the experience — or know where to get it — to truly understand the AI & data nuances in this particular space and to develop unique insights?


Is our data & AI diligence integrated with the broader commercial and financial due diligence, so the insights and recommended actions are consistent with where the value lies?


Are these insights flowing directly into the value-creation plan to jump-start delivery on the investment thesis post-acquisition?
