Hey everyone, I’m Alex, an ex-Amazon software engineer! My co-founder (ex-PE investor) & I are considering building software that would allow acquirers (e.g. search funds) to streamline the vetting process for potential targets.
Our software will connect to a company's bank accounts, accounting software (quickbooks), POS systems (square, toast), ERP (NetSuite), and e-commerce tools (Shopify) to generate financials & a valuation report almost instantly.
We think this would help searchers sift through targets and close deals quicker.
Are we barking up the wrong tree? Would love to hear if people are already trying to automate their investment processes and other thoughts!
