Exit strategies may be one of the most misunderstood aspects of angel investing and this workshop serves to shed a light on how angels and their portfolio companies can work together to achieve the most successful exits. Value creation for angel backed companies is different than for lifestyle companies and the primary difference lies in how we craft the exit strategy. This workshop covers the kinds of exits and how to prepare for each. We talk about what the drivers are for high multiples and how companies can build in value from the very beginning of their companies. The workshop finishes with the “Exit Strategy Canvas” that walks participants through the six key elements of exit strategy. The exit strategy canvas helps boards to create a variety of exit scenarios and work towards optimal outcomes for all.
