There is a better way.
Due diligence that looks forward.
It's not just about where a company has been.
It's about where it could go.
Our work — and your results — are 100% guaranteed.
If we don’t meet or exceed our projections for annualized EBITDA growth, we’ll refund the difference or continue working (at no additional cost) until we do.
The current diligence process is broken.
Don’t settle for a snapshot of the past. Let us show you the future.
Discover opportunities for increased enterprise value
Get a clear picture of future revenues and margins
Realize potential growth and exactly how to achieve it
Traditional diligence vs accelerator diligence
What we do differently
Traditional diligence relies on TTM and provides a snapshot based on past performance and current circumstances.
FortéOne Accelerator Diligence is future-focused — identifying opportunities for revenue and margin improvements as well as a company’s ability to implement change and achieve growth.
We don’t stop with where a company is now. We show you exactly where it could go.
Traditional diligence uses a check-the-box backward-facing approach, with secondary research from separate vendors.
FortéOne Accelerator Diligence is comprehensive — a full picture of the entire business using primary research — with a strong focus on the customer.
Why? Because looking at a company piece-by-piece isn’t going to tell the entire story. And nothing represents the state (or potential) of a company more strongly than how it is perceived by its customers.
What we deliver
Traditional diligence leaves you with a list of things to fix.
FortéOne Accelerator Diligence provides a detailed plan for maximizing enterprise value.
And we lead the implementation.
We work with you side-by-side to ensure your success.
And if we don’t provide the value that we promise? We’ll refund the difference or continue working for free until we do.
In the past two years, our clients have experienced an average annualized return on investment greater than 4 to 1.
