What To Do When You Sell Your Business

Obviously, at HPA we are focused on building businesses.  However, one question we always ask entrepreneurs is, “What’s your exit strategy?”.  It’s not that we want to sell the business right away, but as investors in the business we want the entrepreneur to have some idea about how we will get our money back out of the business.  Investors in start ups are not interested in businesses that give back recurring dividends.  We are interested in scalable growth that can be sold to another company, or in a rare occurrence, listed through a public offering on a stock exchange.  

We saw this article in Techcrunch and wanted to bring it to your attention.  9 most important things you can do when selling your business.  They make sense to us.  Click the link and give it a read.
