YCF’s conferences take a broad theme that gives a variety of speakers the opportunity to set out their own knowledge or experience in different ways.
All young companies taking equity investment from business angels or institutional investors (venture capital, private equity, corporate VC) need to recognise that the investors will at some point need to exit the business, to recoup their investment and hopefully make a profit. This can be by means of a trade sale, or less likely by an IPO on a stock exchange. This year’s conference aims to examine the judgments involved in all aspects of exits; how they are addressed at the time of first investment, how companies and their investors work together towards a satisfactory outcome, and what an exit by the investors means for the company’s founders and employees.
Marks & Clerk are proud to continue our long standing support of the Young Company Finance Annual Conference as sponsors of this great event.
