Why Attend this Workshop?

"Only 25% of saleable companies successfully exit"

Yes, 75% of the time, after entrepreneurs and investors build a saleable company, we blow it and fail to successfully exit. When we miss the ideal time to exit, the most likely end result is that the company will fail - completely.

This workshop will explain why this happens so frequently and give you the skills and knowledge to maximize the probabilities that your company is among those that are ultimately successful.

"Exits are the least well understood part of being an entrepreneur or investor"

The primary reason exits are so poorly understood is simply because they don't happen very often. In reality, the exit is actually just another business process. Done right, the valuation and time line are just as predictable as other, more familiar, business processes like hiring, product development, financings or marketing campaigns. This workshop will teach you how to design and execute an optimum exit for your company.

"Every company should have an exit strategy."

This workshop explains why every company should have a written exit strategy. It will also address the importance of having an exit strategy before a company starts looking for it's first investors.

"If you own shares in a private company, this workshop will make you money"

Exits have changed dramatically in the past decade. These changes have transformed how companies are being financed and sold. If you're a founder, equity incentivized employee or investor, this workshop will make you more money for your equity.
