In addition to Basil’s keynote address the conference will also feature three expert filled panels that will talk to the following topics all centering around the theme of Early Exits:
- Singles and Doubles– Panelists Peter Adams, RVC Executive Director, and Mike Freeman, Innosphere CEO, will discuss why the strategy of several “singles and doubles” compared to a rare “homerun” makes sense for both investors and enterpreneurs.
- Driving the Exit: Founders that exited early and those on that path- This panel will feature several successful founders that have employed this early exit strategy and those that are currently on the path.
- Who are the Acquirers?- M&A is the most likely (positive) exit scenario for most founders. Therefore this panel will feature multiple acquirers who will talk to: What make a company worth acquiring? What can entrepreneurs do to best position themselves for acquisition? and much more!
