10 Best M&A Podcasts for Entrepreneurs and Business Owners in 2023
The world of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) is complex and ever-changing, but it holds great promise for entrepreneurs and business owners. As founders take on the challenge of building and scaling their businesses, many are also thinking about the potential of a future exit.
Unfortunately, many founders pay exorbitant fees to get assistance with their M&A journey, only to find that they need to spend even more time and money getting up to speed on the basics.
But it doesn't have to be that way.
Before signing any engagement letters, Exitwise always advises founders to level up on their M&A knowledge first. And the good news is, there are a wealth of resources available to help them do just that.
One of the best ways to learn about M&A is to listen to podcasts from experienced entrepreneurs, investors, and advisors. In this article, we'll highlight some of our favorite M&A podcasts of 2023, covering a range of topics such as M&A strategy, valuation, financing, due diligence, and integration.
