The Right Time To Exit was Yesterday with Amy Yin

This week on The Exit: Amy Yin has a passion for working in starts at the early stages which led to her working at Facebook, Hire.com and CoinBase. But as those businesses grew, Amy found she missed the early fast-paced environment of start-ups. So she started her own business tapping into the growing working-from-home trend. After 2 years of growth, VC funding dried up and Amy’s hunt for investors turned into a search for acquirers. Find out how she ended up selling to a competitor and why she believes: “if you’re thinking about selling your business, the right time was probably yesterday”.
