Selling Out vs Scaling Up
Wednesday 21st June 2017
08:15 – 10:15
Haymarket Hotel, London SW1Y 4HX

Until recently the accepted norm for tech entrepreneurs is to sell out at somewhere between £10 and £20 million annual revenue.
This session has 4 experienced speakers who will debate the pros and cons of selling out v. scaling up beyond that current ceiling – which should be of interest to all tech entrepreneurs and their advisers/financiers.
Speakers include:

– Alastair Bathgate, CEO and Co-founder of Blue Prism who are one of the most successful AIM ipos of recent years

– Steve Garnett,  leader of global Silicon Valley enterprise software companies who led the recent sale of Fairsail to Sage

– Paddy MccGwire, Managing Director of Silverpeak LLP, Financial Advisers and specialists in sell-side mandates

– Anthony Miller, Managing Partner of TechMarketView who recently launched the Great British ScaleUp’s Programme


The session will be chaired by tech entrepreneur John O’Connell, Chairman of the ScaleUp Group which is made of other successful tech entrepreneurs and executives helping founders grow their businesses.

Please do not hesitate to contact us before June 21st if you would like to discuss your scale up options before then.
