EDD is based on scientific principles


For us as an aid organization, it is incredibly important to have a well-functioning team. EDD provides us with an exciting tool for this purpose. With a very well thought-out and high-quality questionnaire, exactly the right points for the further development of the team are addressed. Through the targeted questions, which each team member answers for himself, we have received a realistic overview of our own strengths and weaknesses. The differences between external and self-perceptions as well as the comparison to the population average were also very interesting. All very valuable information from which we can draw important conclusions.

Marc Hellwing, ProjectWings

EDD was for us the missing piece of the puzzle to a 360° due diligence. EDD helped us to professionalize our decision-making process and to enrich gut decisions about the team with structured data. Our startups have also benefited from the analysis and are dealing with the right team setup at an early stage.

Stefan Kluppenegger, TM Group

EDD allows us to evaluate the key success factor in early-stage startups more precisely, namely the team and its composition. The detailed results of EDD enable a differentiated analysis of the human factor, and they also provide the founding teams with valuable insights into their strengths and potential.

Benedict Rodenstock, astutia ventures

We invest in pre-seed/seed phases and therefore to a large extent in founder:inside teams. EDD is a great support in assessing the teams and thus a great decision support.

We have been using EDD Team Due Diligence for some time and really appreciate the comprehensive assessment of teams. After initially conducting an assessment of our own team to better familiarize ourselves with the methodology and evaluation, we now always use it to assess potential venture capital investments in addition to financial/operational/legal due diligence. As the quality of the respective teams is the key success factor, we are happy to have a great tool at our disposal with EDD.

Armin J. Lang, ARVIQ Capital Partners

We found EDD to be a very exciting tool. Not only the questions, but especially the corresponding evaluation makes you think or shows things that you might have guessed before, but have not yet read in black and white. In this respect, the EDD is a very valuable tool for every founding team!

Florian Holzmayer, Balcosy

Both founders and potential investors are faced with the question of what skills a successful team must have. This question is not so easy to answer. With EDD, however, we were able to optimize ourselves even further on the basis of the results and expand our potential as teams.

René Nagl, FIVSEN

Conducting an EDD - Team Due Diligence will not only create awareness, but also build momentum. Therefore, it is important to monitor it over a longer period of time.

A start analysis, a follow-up analysis (after approx. 3 months) and a final analysis (after approx. 6 more months) should therefore be carried out. This allows you to track exactly how you are developing as a team and what is increasing or decreasing. It is also possible to involve another team member in the process and check the effects on the joint potential for success.
