Anyone have experience in selling homemade chocolates/candy online? If so do you have any advice on the topic?

This is just something I’ve had a personal interest in since I was a kid. Dream come true I guess. My main selling points would be (Made in Canada) and would donate a certain percentage to Canadian charities like the Calgary Food Bank etc.

Also I would make sure to incorporate local pleasures like maple syrup, gooseberries etc.

Selling a startup can come with an emotional cost

Every founder dreams of building a substantial company. For those who make it through the myriad challenges, it typically results in an exit. If it’s through an acquisition, that can mean cashing in your equity, paying back investors and rewarding long-time employees, but it also usually results in a loss of power and a substantially reduced role.

Some founders hang around for a while before leaving after an agreed-upon time period, while others depart right away because there is simply no role left for them. However it plays out, being acquired can be an emotional shock: The company you spent years building is no longer under your control,

We spoke to a couple of startup founders who went through this experience to learn what the acquisition process was like, and how it feels to give up something after pouring your heart and soul into building it.

Knowing when it’s time to sell

There has to be some impetus to think about selling: Perhaps you’ve reached a point where growth stalls, or where you need to raise a substantial amount of cash to take you to the next level.

For Tracy Young, co-founder and former CEO at PlanGrid, the forcing event was reaching a point where she needed to raise funds to continue.

After growing a company that helped digitize building plans into a $ 100 million business, Young ended up selling it to Autodesk for $ 875 million in 2018. It was a substantial exit, but Young said it was more of a practical matter because the path to further growth was going to be an arduous one.

“When we got the offer from Autodesk, literally we would have had to execute flawlessly and the world had to stay good for the next three years for us to have the same outcome,” she said at a panel on exiting at TechCrunch Disrupt last week.

“As CEO, [my] job is to choose the best path forward for all stakeholders of the company — for our investors, for our team members, for our customers — and that was the path we chose.”

For Rami Essaid, who founded bot mitigation platform Distil Networks in 2011, slowing growth encouraged him to consider an exit. The company had reached around $ 25 million run rate, but a lack of momentum meant that shifting to a broader product portfolio would have been too heavy a lift.

Orchard Raises Another $69M to Unify the Home Buying and Selling Experience into a Single Digital Platform

For most people, buying a home is the single biggest investment in their lifetime. For existing homeowners, the process becomes a bit more stressful when they need to consider selling their old home. Orchard allows homeowners to manage this delicate balancing act by allowing you to purchase a new home before you have sold your existing property. Orchards agents handle the entire process of getting you into your new home and selling your old home; handling listing, cleaning, and showings. Cofounder Phil DeGisi shares more about how Orchard is making the homeownership process easier and the company’s recent round of funding from investors that include Revolution Growth, FirstMark, Navitas, Accomplice, and Juxtapose.

Selling my SaaS. Buyer wants to do seller financing. How can I prevent getting screwed?

Mostly in the title. I've never sold IP before, and never done seller financing.

I'm selling my SaaS and the buyer agreed to the price, but wants to use seller financing, which I understand as them essentially paying me the full price over a period of time. In this case a year.

It's a reputable company with funding. But I'm already a little uneasy about their tactics in the sale so far, and I want some kind of insurance that they won't just take the code and stop paying.

Any suggestions on how to handle this?

One person suggested just selling them a license until the full sum is paid, then give them full rights. And if they fail to pay, then sue them for violating the license.

But that just seems like another type of promise that I'd have to enforce on my own cost in the courts.

Selling in multiple countries from day 1(seasonal products)?


Would selling in multiple countries from day 1 be a bad idea? I know that typically international expansion comes later on in the startup journey but I wanted to know what would be a good time to release products that primarily only have demand in one season. Would it be better to wait for the appropriate season in the country that you are located in or would it make sense to start selling in other countries that currently have the products' season as well as to the few customers(since it is off-season) in the country you are in? I understand that selling globally can be challenge and a business that is successful in one place might not be in another. After some research I found that selling in multiple countries on amazon is not as difficult as one would initially think as well.
