Event description

Description

More than ever before, US tech giants are looking across the Atlantic for acquisition opportunities seeking innovation and global scale. So rightly so, entrepreneurs are seeing large, global, deep-pocketed US acquirers as an exciting future home for their businesses. And when thinking about this, founders and entrepreneurs often think about the following (and many more) questions:

What’s the best way to get on their radar?
Do I need to establish a commercial partnership first?
Do they really pay higher valuations than European buyers?
Is their approach to acquisition and the process they undertake any different?
How do they behave post deal – will I spend my life on a plane?



So to help you answer these questions, we have gathered an expert panel who will share their thoughts, expertise and first hand experiences on:

• How large US corporates plan their M&A strategies
• Navigating these large organisations and getting on the radar of the right people
• Building relationships early and the value of commercial partnerships
• Approach to valuation and deal structuring and how you can secure the best possible outcome
• Cultural differences to be aware of
• Securing the best future for your business in their organisation
