Growth and Exit Strategies for Software and IT Companies is the firm's flagship event held four times a year in Silicon Valley, Seattle, New York and London. This conference has an extensive set of advisors and faculty, as well as many other executives and industry experts that it draws upon for each event. This one-day event provides insight from approximately 30 CEOs and industry leaders representing the elite in their field, during several presentations and panel discussions.
A typical agenda covers a financial market overview, IPOs today, Venture Capital, Angel Investors, Recapitalizations, and alternative forms of financing such as debt. In addition to the firms that provide these services, there are speakers and panelists from those firms which have been subject to investment, an IPO or a merger with either a strategic or financial partner. This core group of speakers is supported by specialist presenters covering business modeling, legal, accounting, tax, due diligence, valuation, structure, negotiation, and integration issues.
Since its inception, this conference has received unanimous praise for both the quality of content and speakers. World Financial Symposiums' main priority is to coordinate the top speakers to present the most up-to-date, valuable information in a timely manner so as to effectively educate business leaders.
