Podcast cover
Read more
Today we’re going to talk to Sam Yagan, the CEO of the newly-public Match Group. Match is a dating conglomerate that combines Match, OkCupid, Tinder, and Plenty of Fish under one banner.

The company just went public raising over $400 Million dollars on the back of over a billion Tinder swipes.

In this episode we’ll learn how to handle negative PR better than a bad breakup, how to learn to love churn, and why founding a dating startup is harder than dating itself.

Rank #2: #8 Clip: Four Pieces of M&A Advice for Startup Founders

Podcast cover
Read more
+ Think big: Large companies don't want to buy small companies, unless you have some critical tech, or key people. If you want to get acquired, you need to build something impressive.

+ Build relationships: Founders need to figure out who their natural acquirers are and build relationships with them well before it's time to sell.

+ Get a second bidder: Your deal will only be as good as the competition you create, so find several potential buyers.

+ Deal structure matters: Getting cash up front is the best case scenario, but founders can improve the quality of the deal by being flexible with terms.
