Let us talk exit strategies and the answer for most is clear

If you want a strong exit, M&A seems to be the best exit.  We can let you know about Management Buy Out ( MBO ) and initial public offering ( IPO ) options.  However, you need to look at what needs to happen six to nine months before you sell your company (Acquisition or MBO or IPO).

Did you want us to drill down on an exit strategy for your private company?  Let us show you what happen 2017q3 and our views for the next 12 months.  Contact INFO@RedHookCapital.co anytime.

Here is data from earlier in the year for venture-backed companies.
