Investment Practicalities: trends, successful transactions and exit strategies
To explore the tech sector in detail, Stakeholderz are delighted to welcome Paddy MccGwire to our upcoming webinar on Investment Practicalities. Paddy is Managing Partner at Silverpeak and has 25 years experience in the tech sector including seven years at private equity group 3i.
Paddy will giving investors the latest stats on tech investing in the UK, including the most frequent investors, what changes and trends we’ve seen in the last 12 months (both in the UK and the US), notable exits, and much more.
We’ll then be flipping the experience on its head from the viewpoint of an entrepreneur and how their journey of seeking and receiving investment has changed. This will include how to achieve a strategic exit and how to prepare for one, the considerations and constraints of the process, and what a good exit means for an entrepreneur as well as an investor. Paddy founded Cobalt Corporate Finance (which then merged with Silverpeak), and he’s also acquired a software business, so he has a deep understanding of the real issues in growing a tech business.
