When Should You Sell Your Tech Business?

This post from Seth Levine identifies two peak times for the sale of a software/technology business. The first is the point when the technology has been proven, just before the company enters into "what Gartner would call the trough of disillusionment but what entrepreneurs would more likely call the long hard slog." The second optimum sale point would be upon emerging from slog, when "you now have real critical mass and market validation/adoption. Your revenues are well into the double digits and you’re probably cash flow positive even as you re-invest in your business to keep your growth up."
