‘So, what’s your exit strategy?’ The question often leaves most entrepreneurs stumped as running a business leaves little time to think about anything else.

While business owners recognise that they may have to exit their business at some point, few give enough thought to how they will sell it. And fewer prepare for it.

In this episode of BIC Talks, K Srikrishna, serial entrepreneur, business mentor and author of The Art of a Happy Exit is in conversation with Hema Hattangady, author, entrepreneur and business leader on how can an entrepreneur prepare for all that selling their business entails.

Hema, co-author of Liftoff: The Story of Conzerv has featured as the principal speaker on an earlier BIC Talks episode titled Succeeding in Business Ethically.
