Creating Value: Growth Strategies for Tech Startups
Business owners often get caught up in running their business on a day-to-day basis without considering their long-term goals. This workshop, which is being organised by Informed Funding, is aimed at helping you to stand back, review your growth strategy and consider how you can position your business to achieve maximum value.
We’ll be working through the questions every business owner should consider, whatever stage of growth they are at, including:
- What steps can you take to grow your business over time, which steps are most applicable to your business and what is an appropriate timeframe?
- Have you managed to build and structure the right team for growth and maximising value? And have you got the best experts, internal and external, to advise you throughout?
- Who are your potential buyers? What are your long-term goals (which could include a trade sale, sale to private equity, a management buy-out, an employee buy-out or an IPO)?
- How can you position your business to be attractive to potential buyers and what would make them pay more rather than less? How can you decide what the right time for a sale is and whether the market conditions are favourable?
The workshop will have a maximum of 15 attendee companies, and the discussion will be based around actual case studies (including those of the attendees).
