In entrepreneurship and strategic management an exit strategy, exit plan, or strategic withdrawal, is a way to transition one’s ownership of a company or the operation of some part of the company. Entrepreneurs and investors devise ways of recouping the capital they have invested in a company. The most common strategy is the sale of equity to someone else through a trade sale.
