Securing financing and conducting due diligence are two of the most critical parts of any project. We get many calls for assistance in securing financing – where to go, what to expect, how to be best prepared, etc. On the other side, much of our professional time is spent conducting technical or financial due diligence on projects for potential investors and developers. We are quite often asked to evaluate assumptions and opine on representations about technology, markets, feedstocks, and a myriad of other things. Securing the upfront financing and arranging due diligence from industry experts that can offer the most in-depth scrutiny of a process or project is a key for any undertaking for entrepreneurs or companies that are focusing most of their energies on fine-tuning their idea or technology. There is often separate commercial, technical, and legal due diligence, all intended to offer some assurance—to the developer and to the potential financial backer or institution— that the technical, financial, and political risks are sufficiently low that the project has a strong chance of reaching the stage of viable and sustainable commercialization. Even companies that use their own money to develop a project are well served to conduct due diligence because the information gathered for due diligence are necessary for other stages of the life of a project, such as securing permits and licenses.
