Sybil is a senior investor at a blockchain and cryptographic asset venture fund located in Silicon Valley. Her company is preparing for a new series of acquisitions, for which they are looking to build a portfolio of potential investees that work with zero trust security. Until recently, Sybil and her team relied on investment banks to look into lucrative opportunities and issue new share transactions; however, they are interested in trying new methods for researching companies that can be conducted internally.
Challenge:
Sybil needs a way to cut the due diligence time down when researching potential acquisition/investment targets. She is building a list of viable startup or scale-up targets for developing defensive cybersecurity technologies and needs to find a way to eliminate her company’s reliance on investment banks and external sources for research.
