The Exit Club

THE EXIT CLUB podcast is all about what happens once the papers are signed, the deal is done, and life after exit begins. Each week, host Laura Rich talks with successful entrepreneurs across a range of industries about how they navigated the aftermath of an exit. THE EXIT CLUB pulls back the covers on this final stage of the entrepreneurial journey, sharing stories of grief and triumph.
