This year CCC focuses on Colorado Success Stories and more specifically, those companies that have engineered successful exits or liquidity events for their investors. Entrepreneurial companies and the angel investors who provide funding for them often fail to really understand the importance of the exit in creating the business from the very start. Steven Covey, author of “Seven Habits of Highly Successful People” describes the second habit as “Begin with the end in mind”. This could not be more true for early stage companies who should be planning their exits from the very day they are formed.
The Colorado Capital Conference celebrates those Colorado companies who have successfully crafted an exit in order to provide an example for the hundreds of new companies being formed every day and the angel investors who help to get them going.
