It may not sound like a superpower, but we see it differently: due diligence can add significant value. Not only in our investment round, but for the long-term success of our portfolio companies. Cortado works with best-in-class partners to conduct this diligence and make recommendations to improve a company’s processes, and to bring fractional services which can cost-effectively help on an enduring basis.

When you’re starting a company, the last thing you think of is the “back office,” the accounting and legal structure and practices that keep a company operational. As part of our diligence, we investigate the accounting and legal structure and practices. Our partner HoganTaylor is an accounting firm with tremendous resources for companies from the earliest stage and through the corporate life cycle. We welcome Aaron Ackerman from HoganTaylor who has contributed their insights into this process.
