Share Tech Acquisitions: Digital Strategies for Corporations & Exit Strategies for Startups

Event Details

Traditionally, companies have acquired other companies that are similar to their own organization to drive synergies. However, this has changed; today, technology is the number one driver for merger & acquisition (M&A) deals. Companies are acquiring others to pursue technology assets or digital strategies they do not possess themselves and to keep them away from competitors. For startups, this provides a unique opportunity since being acquired is one of the most favorable exit strategies.

But how to find the right partner?

How to look attractive as a start-up to be considered as a target?

What comes after Day 1?

How to make an integration culturally successful? 

This MIT forum will shed light on tech acquisitions. It brings together M&A experts and experienced buyers and sellers to explore success factors in the M&A space and how to manage successfully through an acquisition. 

Join us on Wednesday February 20th, 2019. We will be accompanied by Kevin O’Connor, a Santa Barbara serial entrepreneur. Kevin founded and sold 3 companies including DoubleClick, which was sold to Google for $3.1 Billion. He also brought Amazon to Santa Barbara when selling his 3rd company “Graphiq” to the tech giant in May 2017.

Organizer

MIT Enterprise Forum of the Central Coast

The Central Coast MIT Enterprise Forum hosts the region’s top business and technology events. Each month, we bring together veteran business leaders and experts to host events designed to educate, inform and inspire entrepreneurs.

Our Mission
To promote a unique process and atmosphere to develop and strengthen the entrepreneurial community in the Central Coast through interaction with experienced executives who have successfully navigated the challenges of building an organization.

In 1986, the MIT Enterprise Forum of the Central Coast was established to serve the coastal business communities of Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology Enterprise Forum has 25 chapters worldwide, each offering unique programs and networking opportunities for entrepreneurs.

Presentations
Early stage businesses face many common challenges. In case presentations, the Forum provides local entrepreneurs the opportunity to present their business plans during an open meeting before a panel of specially chosen business experts and an audience of peers and other people interested in business development. This Forum format provides the presenting companies an opportunity to receive feedback and suggestions for their businesses from experienced professionals.

Selected Topics
Special topic presentations address current and specific challenges facing early stage businesses. A special panel of entrepreneurs and industry experts is assembled for an in-depth “round table” discussion of the issue.

 

MIT Enterprise Forum of the Central Coast is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization registered with the state of California, supported by individual and community contributions. Tax ID/EIN# 77-0248019
