Starting your own business for many people is a long-cherished dream. To choose an innovative and sustainable business model and also to define and live a clear strategy from the very beginning are important success factors for your startup. And if one day your business is so successful that other companies are interested in acquiring your business, you will come across a "due diligence." This is even more likely if you plan an exit from day one of your business, so it does not hurt to learn the requirements of a due diligence in timely manner. It will help to be prepared in the case of an exit, and it may increase the valuation of your company if you know the content and scope.
