The DD-Ready™ story started in 2015, when the concept of DD-Ready™ was developed by the company’s CEO & Co-Founder Heikki Kauppinen, an international entrepreneurial lawyer and angel investor, specialized in transactions and M&A. Heikki wanted to create a solution for target companies’ inability to provide required due diligence documentation in the required form and on time. He had also noticed that the tools used in due diligence examinations were ill-suited for the process and required a lot of manual work.
The DD-Ready Demo platform was launched in 2016 in order to support Heikki’s advisory firm in due diligence processes. During the next 18 months the demo was used with companies that have raised over EUR 45 million to date in total.
It was obvious, that there was a need for the tool on the market globally. After further concept and product development, Diligent Solutions Ltd. was established. Espoo-based Fintech growth company has broadened its vision and is now preparing DD-Ready™ for a global roll out.
