Questions

What concerns should I be worried about when thinking about selling my startup?

Valuation? Earn-out timeline? Return to investors? I know all of these are important to startups but what in your estimation are some of the biggest hurdles that make or break startup acquisitions?

Compatibility with your vision? Does 1+ 1= 3 or even 5? Personality mix? If you are going to stay with the acquired entity. These might be more important than any of the numbers.
