VentureArchetypes and Greenberg Traurig sponsors an evening event for startuppers. From the event website:
“Step One: Recruit an all-star panel from the most active acquirers in Silicon Valley.
Step Two: Get a Keynote speaker who’s sold a startup for $75M to tell how it’s done.
Step Three: Cherry-pick only the best and brightest tech startup CEOs and CTOs to attend.
Step Four: Mix everyone together, lubricate with great wine and beer, and see what happens.
Join successful entrepreneurs and startup acquisition professionals for a special evening event in San Francisco on the topic of “Startup Exits.” Hear stories from entrepreneurs who’ve sold their companies– how they did it, what they learned, and what they would do differently next time. Meet M&A teams from some of the most active acquirers in Silicon Valley. Learn what types of startups they’re looking to buy, how their processes work, and how you can best position your company for a healthy acquisition. Network with fellow startup founders while enjoying complimentary appetizers and an open bar.
