Alpha Speaker Spotlight – Dr. J. Basil Peters

If you ask Dr. J. Basil Peters what he likes most about being an Angel Investor, he’ll quickly tell you that it’s the exit. In fact, he likes the exit so much that he’s started a company called StrategicEXITS that helps companies do just that — design and execute exit transactions. We’re honored to have Basil coming to the stage at Alpha, the first AngelMD conference, running from January 5th through the 7th, 2018.

Basil’s taste for the exit came early in his career when he sold the company that he founded while still in graduate school. Nexus Engineering manufactured headends — the facility that originates and communicates cable television and modem services — for cable television providers. The company was sold to Scientific Atlanta, which then became part of Cisco Systems.

It’s likely that you’ve already read Basil’s work, or seen him speak before. He’s a prolific writer on the StrategicEXITS blog, and he authored Early Exits: Exit Strategies for Entrepreneurs and Angel Investors (But Maybe Not Venture Capitalists), which was chosen by Inc. Magazine as one of the ten best business books.

Basil will be joining a distinguished group of doctors, healthcare innovators, and other investors as we cultivate an environment of learning focused on better understanding and capitalization of healthcare innovations. Join us at AngelMD’s Alpha Conference, and be help shape the future of healthcare.
