Podcast cover
Read more

It remains the strongest market ever for sellers of technology companies. Valuations are high, disruptive technologies are creating new opportunities daily, and there are more buyers than ever. But at the same time, the process is tougher than ever, and those high valuations and additional buyers means it takes more effort to do it right.

So what's it like to make a deal happen? How do you make sure you're getting optimal value? How do you start conversations with the right global buyers? How do you survive due diligence?

Guest Panelists:

  • Jim Falkanger- Former CEO and Founding Partner, EleVia Software (sold in November 2019)
  • Erik Lidman- General Manager, Bizview Systems (sold September 2019)
  • Kerri McConnell- CEO, Datalight (sold June 2019)

Selling a company is the most important transaction of your life--whether that's coming up today or sometime in the future, you won't want to miss this opportunity to hear what the process is like, directly from founders who have just gone through it.
