It’s beginning to look like the dot com era all over again. Everywhere you turn there is an abundance of enthusiasm among investors hoping to cash in on the next big thing. But we have observed, as have others, that the current environment is more like a feeding frenzy than anything else. And if it ends like the many feeding frenzies before it, a collapse is imminent.
As due diligence specialists, we do everything we can to make sure our clients make wise decisions. From industry-leading reports to a technologically based diligence platform, we have the tools and services necessary to help you avoid the feeding frenzy and subsequent collapse. We believe the key is combining your gut instincts with data-driven diligence-as-a-service (DaaS).
More About DaaS
As you already know, due diligence is a process of investigating business opportunities in advance of making decisions about them. We combine the fundamentals of early-stage diligence in a menu of services we offer to advisors, investors, entrepreneurs, and companies.
Our service model allows clients to pick and choose only the services they need when they need them. This benefits clients in the sense that they do not have to pay for services and diligence reports they don’t need. It benefits us in that it allows us to strategically focus on each client’s fundamental needs without distraction.
Now, more than ever, investors need that kind of focus. Now is not the time to allow gut instinct to be the only driver in making investment decisions. There is too much at stake. There are so many opportunities just waiting to be picked up, yet not all of them will make money. Many of them will not. Trusting gut instinct alone doesn’t cut it.
Data Is for Winners
The business world offers a few shining examples of investors who made a ton of money off gut instinct. Their stories are exciting and even a little sexy. But guess what? There are far more losers than winners in the gut instinct game. We don’t hear much about the losers because they keep their stories to themselves.
On the other hand, the number of successful investors who rely on data is quite significant. If it were not, there would be no need for DaaS. The fact that our services are in such high demand proves that data is for winners.
How do you see yourself? If you invest primarily on gut instinct, how is that working out for you? And if you don’t trust your gut instinct at all, relying exclusively on data alone, are you winning more often than you’re losing?
Room for Both
We have worked with enough investors to know that focusing exclusively on one or the other is not the smartest way to go. There is room for both gut instinct and data. And in fact, winning is about combining the two in just the right measure. If you are not doing it, you have a new goal to pursue.
Due diligence is our specialty here at Mezy. We can’t help you with your gut instinct. However, we can provide you with valuable data by way of startup valuation, business valuation, and other due diligence reports. We can compile the data you need in a format that is instantly usable. Our platform combines the latest technologies with proven data collection methods to create reports you can count on.
Is the current feeding frenzy leading to a repeat of the dot com crash? Signs are trending that way. Do not fall victim to the crash. Instead, temper your gut instincts with data.
