Merging two companies is hard work, even for someone seasoned in the practice of overseeing acquisitions. Managing a migration for the first time, however, while maintaining key employees and 95% of clients? That wins gold in the M&A Olympics (which totally exist).
Brevity Pitch CEO (and M&A gold medalist) Kelvin Johnson joins the show to share how his experience leading a M&A in only 27 days took years off his life, how fundraising has changed over the last few years, and how he found a gap in the market for helping entrepreneurs perfect their pitch.
In this episode, you will learn:
- The planning process behind M&As (mergers and acquisitions) and the key risk to mitigate
- Tips for what not to do during a merger
- What it means to separate the role from the soul
- The challenges with communication in today’s society
- A good question to ask yourself when fundraising
