Strategic Exits Corp is a boutique investment bank that acts solely for technology entrepreneurs and their angel investors in structuring and executing the optimum exit transaction. Our team is comprised of seasoned veterans of the technology industry. We understand your challenges and opportunities because we’ve had them too. We have founded, scaled, pivoted and sold technology companies in enterprise software, web applications, robotics, AI, SaaS, clean tech, communications, medical devices, hardware, data analytics and many technology disciplines. Because we are also trained engineers and scientists, we understand your technology quickly and to a great depth. We develop a company exit strategy that will sell your technology business based on its unique value to a worldwide cohort of acquirers.
Some M&A advisory services will give your exit its best efforts. For a while. But if the company proves hard to sell, they will easily move onto the next deal, abandoning you and staining your life’s work. With our Gold-level M&A advisory service, we search the four corners of the world to identify all of the potential acquirers that other M&A advisors have never heard of. We believe our success rate is the best in the industry.
Strategic Exits is more than a boutique investment bank. It is also a thought leader on important M&A trends in the technology industry. Basil Peters developed the theory of early exits: when is it better to sell a technology company early in its development. Entrepreneurs and their angel investors can earn a more certain exit years earlier by avoiding the scaling risk that claims too many companies forced into a rapid-growth strategy. They can eliminate the risk of riding the company over the top by waiting too late to start the exit. Basil literally wrote the book on Early Exits (see below.)
Recently, Strategic Exits noted that it is easier to sell a virtual (fully-remote, or all-remote) company at a higher price than a comparable bricks-and-mortar company. David Rowat explored the reasons why entrepreneurs who start virtual companies create more wealth for themselves and their angel investors. He developed the Founders’ Wealth Creation Formula which compares the wealth earned by the founders of virtual companies and bricks-and-mortar companies, but to what end? Well, during the pandemic, much has been written about the challenges and advantages of the accelerating shift to remote work, but little attention has focused on why virtual companies sell for more. David co-authored a case study for the Harvard Business School (eXp Realty and the Virbela platform case # 9-621-068) that highlights the financial advantages of all-remote companies. Several of his articles and presentations are included in our blog.
Leonard Zapalowski has further developed the theory of early exits. He has defined and explored four drivers that optimize technology companies for an early exit. He will be publishing several thought-leader articles in 2021 and 2022.
