Description

Creating Value: Growth Strategies for Tech Start-Ups

Business owners often get caught up in running their business on a day-to-day basis without considering their long-term goals. This Workshop is aimed at helping business owners to stand back and review their growth strategy and how to enhance the value of their business.

If your intention is to get real value for your business in the future, it's never too early to start thinking about your growth strategy and positioning your business to achieve maximum value.

We'll be working through the key questions every business owner should consider, whatever stage of growth they are at.

  • Developing a growth strategy. What steps can you take to grow your business over time, which steps are most applicable to your business and what is an appropriate timeframe?
  • Have you managed to build and structure the right team for growth and maximising value? And have you got the best experts, internal and external, to advise you throughout?
  • Who are the potential buyers? What are your long term goals which could include a trade sale, sale to private equity, a management buy-out, an employee buy-out or an IPO.
  • How are businesses valued? How do you position your business to be attractive to potential buyers and what would make them pay more rather than less? When is likely to be the right time and will market conditions be favourable.

The workshop will have a maximum of 15 attendee companies – and the discussion will be based around actual case studies (including those of the attendees).

Location:

Plexal based in the Former Press Centre in the Olympic Village in Stratford is a workspace designed to resemble a mini-city, they have their very own indoor park, private phone booths, high street, town hall and workshop space for rapid prototyping (which comes stocked with 3D printers and scanners).

Why? Because they believe innovators need two things: opportunities to connect with people and space to think or create in quiet. And cities do both those things – which is why they’ve been hotbeds of innovation for thousands of years.

They’re just a few moments from many of London’s most important travel hubs.
