Upcoming ACG Boston Events
The next ACG Boston Dealmaker's Breakfast is on October 19 at Boston's Harbor Court Hotel. Tom Roberts, a managing partner at Summit Partners will present the keynote.
On November 14, ACG Boston is hosting the Boston Technology Conference at the Sheraton Needham Hotel. Funny, I try to keep tabs on some New England events given how long I spent on the East Coast, but what is so oddly uncanny is how foreign the language is after being saturated in Silicon Valley for awhile. You forget just how gray, tan and blue everything is, down to the sponsored logos (largely VCs and law firms).
A central theme is "Choosing An Exit Strategy," a common discussion in my circles; also recently covered at the IBD Network's Momentum Conference in Mountain View. Questions they plan to address include:
* What should your company and your investors consider in terms of seeking the best return?
* What are the exit alternatives in an unpredictable market?
* What are leading strategic and financial acquirers looking for?
The first panel will focus on Tech Investing & Buyouts: Who's Making Money? with moderator Charley Lax, Managing General Partner of GrandBanks Capital. Featured panelists include Mohamad Ali, Vice President, Mergers and Acquisitions of IBM, and Tom Crotty, General Partner of Battery Ventures.
The second panel will cover What Is Your Best Exit Strategy? with moderator Stephen O'Leary, Senior Managing Director of Jefferies Broadview. Featured panelists include Avner Schneur, President and CEO of Emptoris.
