The Road to Your Startup’s Exit

Until  ()

About this Event

The Exit. Has a nice tone doesn’t it?  Perhaps the concept is too far off in the distance, perhaps it’s closer than you realize.

How does one manage the task?  How does one add capital value? What steps can you take now to avoid costly and critical errors later, and to position your startup for a more successful exit?

Join the Startup Coalition on May 8, where moderator Jim Da Silva will host an interactive panel discussion about managing growth and the path to an exit.  Hear stories from entrepreneurs who've sold their companies; how they did it, what they learned and what they would do differently next time.
