Trust, ethics, and even personality are vital points that should attract your full attention. Beware of associates who cheat you by selling you skills or a client file that they do not have.


Before embarking on a business, it is imperative to assess all the risks you will have to assume. If your future partner has already been involved in criminal proceedings, this could, for example, prevent your company from obtaining licenses or authorizations.

● Check your financial situation:


Partnering to buy, maintain, or grow a business is valuable to increase your cash flow. It is helpful to know if your future partner will be able to invest when the time comes. A background check may reveal any negative financial situation. Bad credit, bankruptcy, a lawsuit in progress, or even a legal history in the past can testify to a future partnership that is useless and effective or even dangerous.


Knowing his information can also allow you to discuss it with your future partner or see if he is deliberately hiding it and lying to you.


● Trust does not exclude control:


Be careful; many scammers play on the feeling of trust and your good faith. Trust is essential when collaborating, and it must be reciprocal. If a prospective partner isn't telling you the truth about their background, they may not be aren’t in a partnership or hide specific facts.Future partners must immediately put their cards on the table and be honest.

● A long-term vision:


A long-term business strategy is key to its success. Does your future partner have the same vision as you in planning?


Has your future partner ever been involved in a business, investment, or personal issue that does not meet your ethical standards? If this turns out to be the case, this should alarm you. Indeed, it could harm the reputation or profitability of your business. An OSINT survey can be effective in finding out a little more about the future partner’s interests, shared values ​​, and habits. It is essential before associating to know some subjective elements to choose knowingly.

Is he still a stakeholder, particularly in a company’ s capital facing commercial and legal problems?


These questions will allow you to understand your potential collaborator's profile better.


● The image on social networks:


It's a good idea to do a social media survey to determine if your prospective partner has any activities, affiliations, or prospects that you don't prefer to associate your business with. A detective firm will accompany you so that you can benefit from a more thorough investigation process. You will thus obtain a sufficiently clear image to project yourself into a possible partnership. You can do the first checks yourself; a detective firm will work more in-depth on the subject.

But beware, a background check of your potential future partner cannot be exhaustive. The role of the detective and to accompany you to make sense of things and validate the significant assets of any partnership.


The information on social networks is to be taken with hindsight but gives a particular image of the future partner that he cannot ignore.
