Financial Due Diligence Workshop

February 20, 2020 @ 9:15 am - 12:00 pm

Strathclyde Entrepreneurial Network is hosting a workshop on Financial Due Diligence – from an investor and entrepreneur perspective, which will be delivered by Martin Aitken and Co on Thursday 20th February 2020, from 9.15am-12noon. More information on this session can be found below:

Possessing and understanding the key numbers in the business is vital to attracting and securing external investment. However, that is only one of the ingredients that need to be in place if the business owners/leaders are to stand any chance of raising finance.

What funders look for and what do business owners need to do to get their business fit for purpose to successfully raise finance will be amongst the key takeaways from the session.

This workshop will look at:

  • What is due diligence and when it is used/relevant?
  • How does the business owner prepare for it?
  • What will a funder, investor and/or grant provider examine when looking under the bonnet of the business? We’ll discuss the logistics and what’s involved.
  • What key information is likely to be reviewed during diligence e.g. business strategy & plan, product/service & USP, the market, management team & experience, employees, operations/materials management, key financials, internal controls/systems, performance indicators and metrics, cost structure, assets & facilities, technologies utilised, liabilities, current equity structure etc.
  • How does the business hold key information? 
  • How due diligence can help you grow the business


This workshop is hosted by the Strathclyde Entrepreneurial Network and is open to Strathclyde students, staff, alumni and Tontine members.
