Are you considering selling your technology company to a private equity firm? If so, it may be time to adjust your perspective and start looking at a potential sale from an investor’s viewpoint instead of an owner’s.


Private equity firms want the assurance of a solid investment. Therefore, it’s key to differentiate yourself by offering a unique product, leading in a niche market, or strategizing for expansion.
