In one sentence: it’s a very detailed document (15-20 pages), covering all the risks associated with your current technology, codebase, and team-level problems that that will eventually prevent your software product from scaling.
Around 90% of SaaS startups fail within 3 years from launchingdespite having access to sufficient funding. One of the main reasons is their inability to predict what could go wrong with their product, team, or both.
Through our unique auditing process, we’ll help you avoid that scenario. Apart from the specific areas you’ll like us to cover, we’ll also get you answers to the key questions every CTO, Founder, or SaaS team leader should know:

Auditing startups is very different to auditing other types of businesses, because there are many obstacles to be aware of when trying to scale up (like funding, recruitment, or extreme uncertainty about the future). We know these stuggles very well, because:
Our unique methodology is based on 5 pillars, because just analyzing the code or looking at technical documentation isn’t enough:
You won’t see companies like Amazon or Facebook among our past clients. They’re already pretty big. You will, however, see the names that will soon rock the SaaS world because we helped them predict risks and avoid failure.
