37. Get that high value exit

Greg Sharp sold Base2 to Kordia in 2021 for a 10x multiple, so he knows a thing or two about orchestrating a high-value exit. He has also founded several other businesses, the latest of which is ZenContract, a SaaS play aimed at helping MSPs build value in their own businesses through simplifying scale.

Greg joins Brendan for episode 37 of Insights as a Service to talk about what drives bigger multiples, where the MSP industry is going, the convergence of Telco and managed service providers, and what’s next for ZenContract.
