Owners & CEOs

Be ready for opportunities

Raising capital for your business is one of the first steps to turning (or keeping) the lights on, paying employees, and making your product. For many business owners, funding their venture is top of mind. It can also be a stressor.

Not surprisingly, many business owners have a lot of work to do when it comes to preparing to sell their company. But if the predictable aspects of a sale are already prepared for, owners can be positioned to take advantage of good opportunities to sell if they arise.

Even though money is not the most important driver for starting a business, you will want to be properly rewarded for your blood, sweat, and tears.

How much will you earn? projected out your expected equity ownership at exit and you know what your target valuation is at exit, you can calculate your return:

Your expected equity % at exit x the target valuation x (1-capital gains tax rate)

Having this foresight will ensure that you start your business without any regrets and a clear understanding of what you are aiming to achieve.
