For the past decade, the principals of Define Media Group have had hands-on experience working within many of the largest online properties and formalizing customer/audience acquisition strategies for prominent startups of all investment stages. With this deep insight into online marketplaces, nobody is better positioned to distill the operational and landscape risks to the Investment Community.
Our track record in accurately assessing the risks and opportunities in online markets has resulted in investors and acquirers regularly calling upon Define’s veteran team to provide counsel and research to support their transactions. In just the last two years alone, Define has advised or provided due diligence or supporting research for nearly half a billion dollars in deal flow.
M&A Due Diligence
The dynamic nature and compressed evolutionary cycles of the Internet make it difficult for bankers and acquirers to remain current on industry best practices, tactics, and risk awareness. Define Media Group works hand-in-hand with potential acquirers to unwind and deconstruct the key metrics, channels, relationships, and market forces to determine the underlying risks, defensibility of the target business, and forward-looking opportunities.
Startup Research & Analysis
As a potential investor in a startup, Define Media Group can help you assess the category, the demand, the team, and external market forces to determine whether the opportunity merits your money. We are intimately familiar with both sides of the table, the venture investor and working at a venture-backed startup, and our analyses are rooted in a history of what it actually takes to develop a resilient and defensible online competitor.
