Whether you’re acquiring for scale or to sell at a higher value, you need to prepare your business for the best outcome. A good acquisition strategy is not only attractive to a future buyer or investor, but it will help you acquire the right businesses to support growth.
A well-planned acquisition strategy, with the right preparation can help you to find the right opportunity and gain the most value from it. Acquisitions can accelerate scale and increase competitive advantage, but founders often under-estimate the associated challenges and preparation needed to make them work.

This Roundtable will explore:
- Funding options
- Identifying potential businesses and making an approach
- Carrying out your due diligence
- Negotiating the deal
