This is important because the decisions about how you structure and operate the business can have huge implications down the road. Let us hear from three deeply experienced panelists, all of who founders and entrepreneurs and two of whom are active early stage investors, and all have participated in successful exits that have come in various sizes and forms. They will talk about exit strategy planning and, just as important, what exits look and feel like in real life to an entrepreneur, the founder CEO or CSO, and the investor. Online. Free. RSVP
