Exit Strategies - Scaling to M&A Exit or IPO

For founders, an exit often represents the “end phase” of the start-up process, but the journey to get there is most often long and winding. Furthermore, there are various exit strategies for founders to consider and assess in terms of fit for their business, whether it’s through selling the company, going public, or another option. So, when should founders start thinking about their exit strategy and how do you know which route to take?

In this candid panel discussion, our speakers will share their first-hand accounts of scaling through to exiting – detailing the practical aspects of start-up formation from founding, funding, and scaling, through to exit via acquisition or IPO. The discussion will cover the choice of exit strategy, process and preparation required, lessons learned along the way, and what the role of the founder is post-exit.
