Entrepreneurs and Angels anticipate a valuable exit within 3 to 6 years but should plan for longer and potentially more capital-intensive exits. Early exit planning aligns business strategy and stakeholder expectations, increases the likelihood of a successful close, accelerates deal completion, and enhances company valuation. The webinar covers the benefits of early exits, maintaining adequate cash flow, leveraging Angel connections, exploring mergers and acquisitions, initial public offerings, secondary offerings, dividends, royalties, and buy-backs, as well as understanding the risks of fast failure, expensive failure, and zombie companies.
