A business exit strategy is an entrepreneur’s strategic plan to sell his or her ownership in a company to investors or another company. An exit strategy gives a business owner a way to reduce or liquidate his stake in a business and, if the business is successful, make a substantial profit. If the business is not successful, an exit strategy (or “exit plan”) enables the entrepreneur to limit losses.

An exit strategy may also be used by an investor such as a venture capitalist in order to plan for a cash out of an investment.
