Session I: FUNDING YOUR SEARCH
MODERATED BY MARK YUAN, CO-FOUNDER & CTO, SEARCHFUNDER.COM
After deciding that you want to lead a company as a young CEO, you’ll need to find funding. Hear from searchers who've taken different approaches to financing - from tapping traditional investors, accelerators, banks and more - to make their dream a reality.
SESSION II: RUNNING A SUCCESSFUL SEARCH
MODERATED BY SANDRO MINA, CO-FOUNDER & MANAGING DIRECTOR, RELAY INVESTMENTS
Learn from searchers who've successfully navigated the ambiguous process known as “search.” We dive into the specifics of how they ran their operation and how each tactic took them one step closer to becoming a CEO.
SESSION III: LEADING AS A YOUNG CEO
MODERATED BY TIMOTHY BOVARD, FOUNDER & CEO, SEARCH FUND ACCELERATOR
Current and former search fund entrepreneurs share their stories and discuss transitioning to the role of owner and leader of a company. We discuss the challenges and obstacles of leading a business and strategies for success.
Session IV: THE LONG HAUL
MODERATED BY COLEY ANDREWS, CO-FOUNDER & MANAGING MEMBER, PACIFIC LAKE PARTNERS
When do you exit, and how do you sell? How should you engage your investors throughout the process? We’ll discuss how entrepreneurs navigate the exit process and what they do next.
