Strategic Due Diligence: the frame work that the General Partner will use to conduct strategic due diligence will include:

Demand assessment will also entail interviewing purchasers, suppliers, end users of medical devices/healthcare services/health insurance policy holders to better understand future demand strength and to assess pricing elasticity.
Customer Assessment: the General Partner seeks to segment both customers and consumers of Health insurance/medical technology/healthcare services and consumer companies. Customer and consumer segmentation help the General Partner better understand which segments are underserved and why.

The General Partner will assess whether the right product mix is geared towards each customer and consumer segment.
