Startup Exit Planning Template

A guide for CEOs and Board to plan their exit strategies and to keep on top of who their potential acquirers are

An Initial Public Offering (IPO) in a startup company is rare, so the majority of start ups return the maximum value to their shareholders through a form of acquisition. It is the responsibility of the CEO and the board to plan for the exit. CEOs are advised to use this guide to help stay in-the-know of who their potential acquirers are and their relationship with them.

The topics covered in this template are:

- Status

- Need

- Value

- Milestones

- Current Opportunities

- Appetite for Acquisition

Above these sections in the template are questions that you should answer in detail in order to get a better idea of what your company needs to accomplish before it is well positioned for an acquisition.
