BathSPARK Evening Sessions: Selling your business

This is the first in a new BathSPARK event format which we have called "The Evening Sessions". Each Evening Session focuses on a different aspect of startup life and the subject is brought to life by a panel of entrepreneurs who can talk about their experience and respond to questions. The panel will be followed by an opportunity to network with the 40 other attendees!

The Evening Sessions will take place in The Engine Room at The Guild coworking space in Bath. These events are not sponsored, but because we want to provide you with wine or a cool beer and nibbles, there is a cost of £9 per ticket.

The very first Evening Session is about Selling Your Business.

There are plenty of reasons to sell your digital or tech company and even more ways of achieving it. Making it happen takes planning, time, help and maybe a little luck. Whatever stage your company is at, it is worth turning some thought to an exit strategy.

Come along to meet other local business leaders considering, planning, in the midst of, or having successfully completed an 'exit'.

BathSpark are running an after work session with a mix of short talks, panel Q&A and plenty of time to mill, chat and network over a cool beer.

Speaking will be Jasper Westway (sold oneDrum to Yammer in 2010), Chris Dyson (Ashfords), Jamie Ridyard (sold APT to Sungard 2009) and Garry Pratt (sold Teachit to AQA in 2011).

Spaces are limited to 40 and tickets are £9 each.

    Very sorry but we're in the middle of fund-raising and I've just received a bunch of due-diligence questions so I'm afraid I won't be able to attend tonight. Have a great meeting, I'm looking forward to next event. Rgds Jim

    I'm very cross I won't be able to attend this as away on business ... Is there a way we can share the lessons or observations shared (and/or repeat next year)? This feels like a topic that will be needed to be revisited at regular intervals

      Hi Jackie. Sorry you cant make it (did you clock the new date 18th?). If the session and feedback go well I'm sure we will do more or related events and/or 'training'
