BY INVESTORS FOR INVESTORS AND THEIR STARTUPS
Our fund, SOSV, has over 700 startups in portfolio. Exits are a big deal to us, as it should be to every single founder and investor. Yet, we often hear things like: “It’s too early to talk about exits”.
But is it? Just like fundraising, startups need to prepare. As soon as you have raised a round of funding, you need to be ready anytime. Or, as one of the upcoming participants to this masterclass (a CEO of startup with >$5M ARR) wrote: “Exit optionality is the best way to get the highest return. Building that optionality is my job.”
It was time to raise the topic, so we did!
WHY A MASTERCLASS ON EXITS
Fortune Favors the Prepared.
Startups dedicate lots of time to product, sales and fundraising, but remarkably little to exits. Yet, they are the result of market forces, timing and often years-long preparation.
The vast majority of exits are M&As and happen at series B or before (80%). This means only one thing: prepare early, and especially for M&As!
Exits 2016: 3,260 M&A vs. 98 IPOs
M&As are 30 times more common than IPOs!
