Contract Horror Stories: The Compliance Crawler

October 31, 2022 2 min read

Whew! Now that you’ve battled the Auto-Renew Outlaw, Rogue Contractor, EOQ Cruncher, Licensing Misfit, and T&C Bandit, you’re feeling super ready to keep your company pushing forward toward an initial public offering (IPO).

You’ve even heard that a respected investor is looking into your company. That team is looking to make an investment and feels your product has the potential to be a real game changer. After the initial diligence, the team has asked for your contracts, financial statements, and compliance records in order to finalize an investment.

And who knows where the others are. Your team is pretty sure they can find most of them… from this year. But all the previous years? Who knows. 

If you don’t gather them soon, you’ll lose an incredibly lucrative investment opportunity.
