The acquisitions that capture headline news often involve a lot of money. But what other factors drive acquisition, and is acquisition even a viable exit strategy outside the tech industry? Can a socially-minded food & beverage company, for example, have a successful exit?
Our March 2016 PubTalk featured acquisition stories from socially-minded food and beverage entrepreneurs, including Amelia Pape of My Street Grocery, Richard Satnick of Laughing Planet and Dick’s Kitchen, and Shobi Dahl of Dave’s Killer Bread.
These entrepreneurs demonstrated that a successful exit doesn’t have to be solely defined by dollar signs. In the case of a mission-oriented company, it’s often more about who can most effectively carry on and expand the mission to maximize impact.
