In this episode of SaaS Boss show I interview Thomas Smale of FE International.
There is plenty of advice on what it takes to have a successful exit when you want to leave your business. However, before going down that road, much thought and planning should go into getting an accurate valuation so that you can have a profitable exit as well.
At FE International, Thomas Smale has consulted or worked on over 800 transactions. He's pulled together some of the best practices from most experienced investors and snippets of knowledge from their acquisitions to provide some guidance for new and seasoned buyers alike to answer: how do you value a SaaS business?
Things we discussed:
Outlook on the market due to COVID-19
What founders should know to get the best offer for their SaaS company
The process of selling a SaaS
Will the founder or the team need to stay after the sale?
What can we do now if we consider selling a company in a year?
What do buyers look for in a company they are purchasing?
and much more.
Actionable advice for bootstrapped SaaS founders from coaches and consultants about startup scaling challenges, building remote teams, leadership, getting unstuck, founder personal growth and more.
