For Executives


Optimizing Your Exit Opportunities

Despite what the tech media would have you believe, there is more than one path to a successful outcome for tech companies.  Your companies roadmap to success should be defined by your leadership and your leadership team. Do you measure “success” by how much money you make? Do you measure “success” by building a company that allows you to be your own boss? Do you measure “success” by bringing your products to the broadest market possible? Do you measure “success” by reaching a $200M+ annual recurring revenue target? Defining what success means to you and your team — not what the media or investors say it is — will help you develop a growth strategy that will pave the way for a successful investment round or acquisition.

In this workshop, we discuss

  • the valuation lifecycle of a startup

  • how to go about thinking about your exit options, and

  • how preparing for an eventual exit helps you build a better business.

Change Management: Change is the new normal. Whether it’s a new technology, business model, client, boss, or level of responsibility, your business and your career path will continue to evolve every day. There is always an opportunity to do things differently and (hopefully) better – endless possibilities to evolve as fast as the world around you. Yet change is intimidating. And even when you want to make change happen, it is hard to know where to start or how to align your team or your organization to pull in the same direction.  To effect change, you need to take risks and get comfortable with not knowing and not always being in control of the future. 

In this workshop, we discuss the skills you need to be an effective change agent, how to craft a compelling vision, enroll others to get involved in what you have underway, and make sure you are course correcting in the right direction.
