About this Event

This workshop emphasizes how to identify the most critical information, the risks of not knowing it, and the methods and costs of getting it. Attendees will learn what it takes to mitigate the risk of investment by validating a market opportunity, a management team, and a plan. They will be introduced to a disciplined investigation approach that systematically examines sources of risk, and establishes the basis for a productive and trusting relationship with the entrepreneur.

By the end attendees will be able to:

  • Identify the major sources of risk in an investment deal
  • Explain the tradeoffs inherent in the time and costs of due diligence
  • Identify the essential risks in a particular deal and avoid wasting time on minor matters
  • Apply a range of checklists, templates, and frameworks to ensure appropriate depth and breadth in their investigations
  • Proactively manage the process of due diligence investigation.
