Interested in the M&A market? Get educated!

Selling your tech company is about changing your life and achieving a dream. However, while it’s likely the most important transaction of your life, it’s also by far the most complicated–80% of owners who try to handle a sale by themselves fail. To achieve an optimal outcome, you need to get educated. This introductory overview of the merger market and trends, the process and pitfalls, will help you understand the basics of a successful M&A process.

Your instructor is a former company owner who sold his company. The event will also feature presentations by several industry experts. Please forward to anyone who might find this event interesting (owners and executives in the software, IT and related technology industries).
