“Trello, Jet.com, Waze…. Highly visible startup M&As abound. However, for each startup that successfully completes a transaction, many more make mistakes that cost them the deal. With M&A increasingly becoming the likely outcome for most startups, what are the things that you—as a founder—need to know in order to generate acquisition interest in your company and navigate to a close?
On March 27, 2017, we’re bringing in tech founders who sold their company to Shopify, Twitter, LiveNation and Rubicon Project to share their experience. Ezra Roizen, General Manager at Advsr and author of Magic Box Paradigm: A Framework for Startup Acquisitions, will moderate the panel discussion. We will discuss what to expect in a startup acquisition, how to position your startup to generate acquisition interest, ways to increase your upside, and deal-killing mistakes to avoid. We will open things up to the audience too, so bring your questions for our panelists!
