The reason why it is so difficult for existing firms to capitalize on disruptive innovations is that their processes and their business model that make them good at the existing business actually make them bad at competing for the disruption - Clayton Christensen, Disruptive Innovation Expert.

About the service


You have built your startup. You have scaled it up. Now it is time to Exit.

The Million Dollar question is whether you want to do the exit on your own or do you think you might want to consider professional help.

There is no harm in doing it on your own but an exit is a tough emotional and difficult journey where a few words could make a difference between a very successful exit versus a mediocre exit or potentially a failed exit.

This is where Exit Coaches come in. Today many businesses are being sold relatively early; Often this is 3 years after they have started.


Key ConsiderationS


So what does an Exit Coach do? He/She can offer the following:

  • Visualization of a successful exit
  • A well articulated exit strategy with options for exit via a Trade Sale (M&A) or IPO or SPAC
  • Valuation analysis and appropriate numbers for Exit Value via Financial Projections
  • Carefully constructed Exit Plan with milestones
  • Selection of an M&A Advisor/Advisory Partner, Lawyers, Accountants and/or a Licensed Investment Banker
  • Kicking off an Exit execution plan, Program Managed by Varidus

 (Note: We only will help introduce and select the right partner. We will not provide financial advice. The M&A Advisor may provide the appropriate advice, based on their licensed status. Our role is limited to Coaching, Program Management and Coordination - all activities which do not require any license).
