The DD-Ready™ story begins in 2015 when the concept was developed by CEO and Co-founder Heikki Kauppinen, an international entrepreneurial lawyer and angel investor specialized in transactions and M&A. Heikki wanted to provide a solution for target companies’ inability to provide required due diligence documentation in the required form and on time. He also spotted that the tools used in due diligence examinations were ill-suited for the process and required a great deal of manual work.
The DD-Ready demo was launched in 2016 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 45 MEUR million to date.
It was obvious there was a need for the tool on the global market. After further concept and product development, Diligent Solutions Ltd. was established. The Finland-based fintech growth company has broadened its vision, and is now preparing DD-Ready™ for a global rollout.
