There Has Never Been a Better Time

To Sell Your Technology Company


Why This is the Hottest M&A Market Ever, and How You and Your Company Can Take Advantage.


Strategic Exits will explain how you can take advantage of this unique opportunity in the history of the technology industry.  But beware that selling a company is difficult even in hot markets: 


Only 25% of entrepreneurs and investors are happy with the results.

Of the other 75%, many fail to exit at all, and some companies die in the process.


Join David Rowat active angel investor, board member and advisor for early stage technology companies and Jason Bax, digital marketing expert and exit advisor, in this interactive workshop . Enjoy the insights from exited entrepreneurs and experts on our panels.


Exit Strategy in the Hottest M&A Market Ever: 

The M&A markets for tech companies are buoyant, but most technology company exits are failing to take advantage.  Strategic Exits will demonstrate why a well-considered strategy is crucial to achieve the maximum value. 


In this seminar you will learn:

  • Why this is the best time in history to sell a tech company
  • How to build alignment of all stakeholders around your exit strategy
  • How to prepare your business and your team for a successful exit 


Who should attend

This session will be informative and valuable to Investors, Founders, Entrepreneurs, and CEO’s; the executives who will plan and execute the exit, and the founders and investors that will benefit from its success. 

The key take-away is  that planning should begin now to align your strategy and operations to support an exit.
