Scale or Sale: How to Optimize Your Exit Opportunities

Despite what the tech media would have you believe, there’s more than one path to a successful outcome for early stage tech companies.

The questions you as a founder need to ask yourself are simple:

  • What are you looking to get out of this (ad)venture?
  • Do you measure “success” by how much money you make?
  • Do you measure “success” by building a company that allows you to be your own boss?
  • Do you measure “success” by bringing your products to the broadest market possible?
  • Do you measure “success” by reaching a $200M+ annual recurring revenue target?

Your definition of success dictates the kind of business you are going to build and how, as well as your funding and exit strategy. The key math for you as a founder to do is figure out the best time to sell to achieve your, and your team’s, definition of success.

In this webinar, Silicon Valley M&A expert, Mona Sabet shares when to strategize about your exit opportunities, how to go about doing it, and what you need to take into consideration. Specifically, she will cover:

  • The life cycle of a startup
  • The yearn to scale
  • When is the right time to start thinking about your exit
  • Building the foundation to manage your flight path
  • Scale or sale considerations
