It's not enough to be just an amazing entrepreneur anymore--you must be a futurist too, with an ending in mind almost before you've even begun. How much is that idea based in reality, though? Do you really need to have your company's exit strategy ready from the get-go? What are the facts and figures around exits today? What's the best way to prepare for M&As and IPOs--and how much of the structure do you really need to get your company from here to there?
Join SVForum and Pillsbury for our Quarterly Venture Breakfast on Thursday, September 11th, to hear from a panel of experts talk about what it takes to get "there and back again": everything from VCs and their expectations, the full scope of an entrepreneur’s exit journey, M&A and IPO investment bankers’ process, and how to best prepare your company for the process each step of the way.
Panelists (more to be announced soon!)
Tricia Salinero, Managing Director Co-Lead of Software and Internet Services, Woodside Capital

Moderator: Allison Leopold Tilley, Partner, Pillsbury Law
