An Ideal Farewell: Learning’s from Big Exits

In our industry, there is a saying that great businesses get acquired and not sold. Entrepreneurs don’t build businesses with exit in mind, but having been through a big exit, it is important to look back and see what the learning’s were. This panel includes three high profile leaders who have had great exits – Freecharge, TaxiforSure and NetMagic and will discuss the following themes:

  •  The exit point– when you thought this is a proposal worth considering, how do you go through the process?
  • How important were the soft factors such as culture fit, product fit, shared vision, operating model post transaction in the overall scheme of things?
  • How did you ensure that the transaction was going to be a win-win for all stakeholders involved? How did you handle the emotional dilemma of thinking different for yourself from the organization?
  • India has a relatively nascent Indian M&A eco-system, how you see it evolving from here and what can entrepreneurs and investors do to achieve the exit liquidity levels that the US / Israel eco-system produce
  • Life after Exits – will you do another startup and how different will that be?
