Session Name:

Exiting / Cashing Out - Strategies to be Acquired, Merge, Go Public


Every business needs an end-game. The time to start thinking about this is at the formation stage. The time to start planning for it is when you begin to take outside equity financing. How you finance will have a strong influence on how and when you may look to cash-out. The panel will discuss expectations of founders, angels, venture and institutional investors; how those expectations may influence decisions made by the board of directors or managers, and what founders can expect when the time comes for the end- game.
