“It's so important to marry these two processes (diligence and integration) and get ahead of it so that we can start planning ahead without wearing down founders with redundant questions.”

The interview closes with a discussion on red flags during the diligence process, what tools you can use to create value in deals, and a founder's place in the company post-close.
