The past few decades have shown a dramatic rise in start-up acquisitions, which have become the dominant channel through which ventures successfully exit. But how effective are start-up acquisitions (1) for big companies as a source of new innovation and talent and (2) for the careers of acquired founders and employees? In this session, Professor J. Daniel Kim and panelists will discuss the post-acquisition reality from the perspectives of both established companies (“acquirers”) and start-ups (“targets”). They will also share actionable observations and lessons that both parties may want to consider in the future.
