Skipa helps founders to prepare for investor due diligence
With a great idea, the right people and infrastructure, and enough funding, the opportunities are limitless.
We will work with you in the crucial pre-diligence phase to prepare your company for the scrutiny of Seed or Series A investors.
We’ll check that you’ve got thorough plans, the right people and the right tech in place – and if not, we’ll develop the roadmap to get you there.
Then we’ll put ourselves in the shoes of potential investors, asking the questions we know they’ll ask, until you can be confident you have answers for everything
Skipa supports the investor due diligence process
Traditionally, the investment due diligence process has focused on examining the financial and legal aspects of a company.
Today’s smart investors recognise that they need to understand the complete business:

How Skipa supports investors
after due diligence: 100-day support
If you’re happy to go ahead with an investment following due diligence, and the transaction proceeds, we will support you and the company management through the process of implementing our recommendations.
We call this ‘100-day support’ and for this period we’ll be embedded in the team, working with key people to provide guidance and clear navigation towards the transaction’s successful conclusion.
Following the successful conclusion of a transaction, Skipa’s experts can stay on board as part of the client team, providing ongoing advice and guidance, ensuring that our recommendations have been successfully implemented, and, if appropriate, preparing the business for the next round of growth funding
