Big tech IPOs get all the press, but acquisitions make up 99% of successful exits for startups. Getting acquired requires a specific strategy, and it's almost never too early to start thinking about it.
Join us for an exploration into why large companies acquire startups and how, as a startup founder or executive, you can maximize your chances of success. Paul Weinstein, a technology-focused banker and an expert in startup M&A, will lead the discussion. Topics include: how do large organizations think about acquisitions? How can I position my startup to demonstrate maximum value to an acquirer? Who are the key stakeholders involved when getting a deal done?
By attending this seminar, you'll understand why a company with five people and no revenue can sell for a billion dollars, while a company with five hundred people and $100 million in revenue sells for only a fraction of that amount.
Paul will speak for one hour and reserve an additional 30 minutes for Q&A. RSVP required -- space is limited.
