Meeting Overview:

Exit Strategies:  Cashing In

Creating a business so that it will become well positioned to be acquired is a smart plan and a very well-regarded business model that is highly attractive to investors.  Mergers and acquisitions are the dominant path to liquidity for most companies.  Being able to plan for this exit requires market and business insight and a path for technical accomplishment that will be compelling to leading commercial partners as acquirers.  Tonight our speakers will talk about what companies have done early on to "position" for their exit and how they appealed to the right buyer.  They will emphasize the preparation, structuring, and negotiations and how to make the best possible deal.
