Optimizing M&A Strategies

Navigating the M&A process, including developing a strategy, valuation, and targets can be costly if not done correctly.


In this CEO Roundtable, Christian Lagerling, Beluca Ventures CEO & Founder and Co-Founder & Senior Advisor at GP Bullhound, will review the M&A process with an emphasis on practical advice to streamline and accelerate the process to maximize success:


  • How do I, as CEO, optimize my chances to succeed with my explicit or indirect M&A strategies?

  • How proactive or reactive should I be to enable M&A interest? How do you balance company vs. owner motivations?

  • Timeline and process expectations and considerations

This panel is open only to past participants of the CEO Roundtable Series with revenue in the $5M - $50M range.
