Conducting Due Diligence on Clients

  1. Is the company profitable?
  2. If not, what is their monthly burn rate? When was their last fundraise and for how much?
  1. Did they change the scope of work? If yes, how dramatically and how many times?
  2. Were they responsive to your communications? If so, what was the response time?
  3. Did they pay on time? If no, how late were the payments?
  4. Did they try to renegotiate the terms of the contract at any point?
  5. Any other comments about working with this client?
