Surviving Technical Due Diligence

Tuesday, April 2nd
8:30 – 10:00 am

Featuring: Ryan Comingdeer, CEO – Platformr.cloud, Susy Dunn, Chief Administrative Officer – Resilinc, Devon Horace, Principal – Portland Seed Fund

The goal of technical due diligence for a startup is to assess a product or service’s systems and infrastructure for potential risks, weaknesses, or gaps. This is done to catch anything that could hinder your company’s growth trajectory or compromise its ability to deliver on promises to investors, customers, and partners before it’s a problem

Successful technical due diligence requires careful planning and preparation. Understanding the process can help defuse many uncertainties and provide focus on the items that matter most.

This AOTech conversation will teach participants what to expect during a technical audit and how to prepare — both logistically and mentally — for the entire process.

Session Focus Points

  • Team Responsibilities
  • Product Roadmap
  • Technology Stack
  • Processes
  • Documentation
  • Security: Practices & Concerns
  • Backups & Disaster Recovery
