Acquisition and IPO Strategies for VC-Backed Companies is an authoritative, insider's perspective on the best practices for venture capitalists who are pursuing an exit. Featuring founders and managing partners of successful VC firms across the nation, these authors discuss the internal and external factors in timing an exit, as well as strategies for evaluating potential profitability. From understanding key market factors and the impact of different ownership structures to minimizing potential risks and working with members of the management team, these experts offer advice on how to position a company to execute the best possible exit. Additionally, these leaders analyze valuations, articulate the pros and cons of M&A and IPO strategies, and discuss how to deal with a bankruptcy scenario. The different niches represented and the breadth of perspectives presented enable readers to get inside some of the great minds powering the venture world, as experts offer up their thoughts around the keys to success within this facet of venture capital investing.

Inside the Minds provides readers with proven business intelligence from C-Level executives (Chairman, CEO, CFO, CMO, Partner) from the world's most respected companies nationwide, rather than third-party accounts from unknown authors and analysts. Each chapter is comparable to an essay/thought leadership piece and is a future-oriented look at where an industry, profession or topic is headed and the most important issues for the future. Through an exhaustive selection process, each author was hand-picked by the Inside the Minds editorial board to author a chapter for this book.
