OpenUp: Exit Right
Before you sell your company, even the odds. While a successful entrepreneur may exit a handful of companies in their lifetime, large buyers close deals all the time. Without decades of experience in mergers and acquisitions, founders don’t have the tools they need to get the best results for themselves, their teams, or the new parent company.
Learn where deals get into trouble, how to create alignment between negotiating parties, and what terms you should care about most. Above all, learn how to win in both the short and the long term, maximizing your price while positioning your company for a legacy you can be proud of.
In this fireside chat with the authors of the book Exit Right, Mark and Mert will be covering topics like…
- When is the right time to sell your startup?
- What are the factors that founders should consider when they are evaluating exit paths?
- What is an “Exit Talk”?
- How can founders use it to reach alignment in their boardrooms?
- How can founders optimize for the long-term?
- What are some of the common pitfalls that founders should avoid when they look at a term?
