Selling Your Startup to A Big Company

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Working with a large company can offer lots of benefits to a startup – access to customers, access to new markets, product integration opportunities and simply, the chance to ride a big company's large marketing coattails. Big companies also represent a potential source of capital and ultimately the most likely exit opportunity for entrepreneurs. However, cultivating these relationships is tricky, can be very distracting, and without careful thought can ultimately lead an entrepreneur down the wrong path. We'll explore the art and science of managing these relationships. Join two experts – one who founded and sold a company, and the other who bought it from him – as they provide guidance on this topic.
