We are delighted to announce our first Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) event, in Central London (venue TBC) on Thursday 23rd November.
The Sunfish approach is to do things a bit differently; you don’t need to be an M&A guru to attend. In fact, chances are you’re relatively new to buying companies and/or you’re looking at a future exit for your own business but you’ve never sold a company before. You’ll definitely be in telecoms or tech, probably between £2m and £20m revenue, and looking both for practical advice and to meet other people who are looking at buying and selling tech firms or helping others to do so.
In terms of format, there won’t be any theory, just practice. The event boasts guest speakers with decades of experience, with real-world successes and cautionary tales of failures too. Our keynote speaker is Alastair Mills, serial entrepreneur and former CEO of Six Degrees Group and SpiriTel plc. He’ll be joined by leading practitioners giving practical tips for buying, selling and getting your house in order. The last third of the event will be an interactive panel, with panellists spanning private equity, debt, corporate advisory and financial analysis. You’ll get the full 360 degrees view of how to be successful in M&A from all the players in the value chain.
Not only will you get to hear world-class content from seven veteran experts, you’ll get to spend some time with them socially. After the formalities, we’ll have an open bar for a few hours so that you can network properly – meet peers with similar challenges, companies looking to buy, others looking to sell, and advisors poised to help you raise money, make acquisitions and realise successful exits.
