Exit Strategies and Executions

Description: this workshop is about designing and executing the successful sale at maximum value by running a structured process that generates multiple bidders and exploits inefficient market dynamics to maximize selling price. It will also illustrate how mentors, angel investors and directors can contribute to the exit process.

Who should attend:

  • Owners, Founders and Investors to know how and when your investment will payoff, 
  • CEOs and CFOs: the wrong exit execution may scare off investors and current investors will want some return of capital.

Overview: The exit is the essential point in any investment lifecycle where the angel finally gets their financial return. So it must be achieved – ideally very quickly and with a very large return. This module will cover a wide range of tips and techniques, hard-won from the experience of angels who have gone before, to ensure a successful exit from angel investments. A systematic approach will be presented in which the exit strategy becomes the key driver of all decision-making, including the screening and selection of investment opportunities, the structuring of term sheets, and the growth strategies for the new ventures.

Why attend? The Exits Execution workshop provides the knowledge and resources to maximize the probability of completing a successful exit, ensuring the price is fair, the terms are reasonable and the outcome is optimum for the team and the business.

A mix of panel discussions, case studies, and instructor-led group discussions will predominate the methods used in this module

We will invite all attendants to join us for a drink and a bit in the our house pub after. We buy!
