"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.
Every company should have an exit strategy. This workshop explains why, and addresses the importance of having an exit strategy before a company starts looking for investors. Most entrepreneurs don't realize they will be unsuccessful at raising money with a poorly described exit strategy (or worse, no exit strategy at all).
Exits are the least well understood part of being an investor or entrepreneur. In reality, the exit is actually just another business process. Done right, the valuation and timeline are just as predictable as other, more familiar, business processes like hiring, product development or marketing. This workshop will teach you how to design and execute an optimum exit for your company.
You'll also learn why only one quarter of the companies that could be successfully sold actually end up exiting - and why missing the optimum time to exit usually means the company fails completely.
The Fall 2012 Exits Workshop sold out 10 days beforehand, with registrants from California, Ohio, Ontario, Idaho, Alberta and Washington.
