Discussion points will include:

  • What is the current appetite for deals? Compared to previous years?
  • Thin pickings or window of opportunities? How suitable is the startup community in creating the environment to do more deals?
  • Building the infrastructure to do more deals
  • Focusing on revenue generating companies
  • Tuck-in acquisitions vs. white space deals: where to focus
  • Growth through non-traditional markets: which areas can supplement growth?
