Performing Due Diligence
Investing time and resources into technology partners, or capital and expertise into strategic investment partners, demands rigorous analysis before any decision. In emerging technology markets, the challenge of defining technology potential and enterprise value represents the greatest such challenge. It is vital to evaluate not only the company and its technology, but also the markets it is targeting, which are often emerging themselves. The extra degree of uncertainty requires the most careful possible analysis of technology and markets before committing critical resources. Lux Research helps executives:
