Exit Strategies for Founders
Tuesday, January 28, 2014 from 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM (EST)
Presented by Shipman & Goodwin
How does a founder maximize his/her return from a company sale and protect as much of his/her equity position as possible in subsequent investment rounds? This presentation will focus on practical advice and strategies for founders in planning for both exits and subsequent investment rounds. We will cover, among other things, strategies for “keeping yourself indispensable” and thus maximizing your leverage in a subsequent round, deciding whether to sell or raise additional capital, retaining equity and involvement even if you are no longer running the company, and putting the company in its best light for a sale or subsequent round.
