16% of startups exit. Over 80% fail.

Great execution is the most critical factor in setting up a company for a successful M&A event. However, proper M&A planning can make the difference between a blockbuster deal - or no deal. Great execution and proper planning are critically important to success. 
In this webinar, TechStrat’s Nat Burgess, Steve Peltier, and Michael Bolotin, provide real-world advice on maximizing M&A opportunities for tech companies, specific guidance on being diligence-ready, and tips for using finance as a strategic tool to maximize valuation.  

This webinar covers the following topics and more:

  • Numbers game - which companies sell? At what stage? Why? What happens to the rest?
  • Aligning shareholders, board, management, and employees
  • Optimizing operations to be "diligence ready"
  • Scripting early conversations with interested buyers
  • Knowing who your potential buyers are - and how you can help them
  • How to start, manage, and complete a process
  • And a deep analysis of the single most important strategy that CEOs can adopt to maximize their value - in the shortest amount of time.
