Exit Strategies and Execution

As any business angel will tell you, exits are fundamental in sustaining your activities as an investor. Making a positive return on investment, however, doesn't simply happen by chance. Planning is key and you should begin early on, even before deciding to invest in a given startup. During this masterclass we will start by covering the different forms of exits and then dive deep into the details of how to strategically prepare and execute them from a legal, financial and team point of view. Our expert mentor, Jesper Drescher, Danish Business Angel Investor of the Year in 2017, will share also his experience in doing 3 different types of exits: IPO, trade sale and management buy in.
