How to Sell your Startup to a Public Company

There is a great deal of difference between a private company and a public one. One big difference is the kind of regulatory regime a private company has to comply with is much less stringent and much less expensive than the one that public companies have to comply with after Sarbanes-Oxley.

So, what does this mean to a private company that is looking to potentially get acquired by a public company? Unless you have prepared your company then the process can get messy and when acquisitions get messy they become much more expensive.

But our good friend Pete DeAngelis has a better way. Having navigated these potentially rough waters Pete steered his private company into the safe harbor of a public company without much friction. By watching this video you will find out how Pete was able to accomplish this while getting top dollar for his private company.

About Pete DeAngelis: Pete DeAngelis has raised more than $7.5M for companies he has been an executive or board member for and he is also on the Investment Committee for the Cove Fund. In other words, when he talks about how to finance your business you should listen.
