Bolster your network with specialized due diligence experts

One of the most challenging things about running a business, particularly in an ever-changing economic environment, is quickly finding the right-fit resources to effectively provide high-value solutions. If you’re an upmarket fund, it’s easier to tap into big groups and their A-teams because budgets allow for this spend.
But if you’re sitting squarely in the middle market, you may be better off sourcing niche, specialized individuals, or small groups who understand the nuances associated with portfolio companies of that size. This does not mean you won’t get A-players. In fact, the opposite is true. Service providers who are built for the middle market aren’t generalists: they have specific functional and resource-area expertise and come with decades of experience.
What does this look like in practice?
Below are two examples of middle-market funds that worked with BluWave to identify specialized due diligence groups.
- Case study #1: Finding a niche e-commerce resource within specific budget criteria
- Case study #2: Performing digital marketing due diligence on a new business
