Product's Tech Side Review

At Upsilon, the due diligence methodology is based on reviewing and evaluating 5 key tech areas of the project. From our experience, these areas most fully cover the project's tech aspects and affect the amount of future effort and investments needed for its development and scaling. They are:

Hiring

Hiring people with the right expertise can take time and effort, depending on how complex and modern the project stack is. And this, in turn, can slow down the formation of teams and product scaling.

Onboarding

Since time-to-market is a top priority factor for any startup, future success heavily relies on onboarding - or how quickly the team can grasp the business and tech specificities of the project and start coding.

Development

By reviewing the project's code, architecture, designs, and all processes related to testing and deployment, you can be sure that you are investing in a quality-end product that functions how it should.

Reliability

Most startups focus on stunning product design and killer features while reliability often fades into the background. For you, as an investor, a minute of downtime and negative user feedback can cost thousands of dollars.

Security

Startups usually have fewer resources to enforce product security. The bigger the product grows, the greater the damage can be from a security breach. Uncovering vulnerabilities during the tech audit will prevent your business from money and reputation losses.

Quality Criteria Evaluation

Each tech area is determined by several criteria it consists of. We assess those criteria in two aspects: the current level and the complexity of fixing. As a result, each criterion is assigned a certain value of the "Health" indicator.

3

Project’s Health Score

Based on the "Health" of all criteria and tech areas, we derive an overall "Health Score" for the project.
