About the event

For entrepreneurs with experience and motivation, acquisition is a profitable alternative to starting a new business or inventing a new product. 

It takes a thoughtful appoach, however. You need to consider the payoff you're looking for, the role you want, the help you need, and the risk you're willing to assume.

This is where experts in entrepreneurship, funding, equity capital, and team building at each stage of the process can provide guidance.
