I'm a solo-founder of a bootstrapped SaaS startup. While I have been approached by several parties over that last several months, I have always politely declined all interested parties as I wanted to focus on my product and did not consider investors or selling.
With that said, a much bigger, successful, and well-funded startup (100+ employees) is seriously interested in my product and I'm considering it because both products would nicely complement each other.
Since we are not talking pennies, but somewhere in the eight-figure range with too many variables (valuation, small stake vs full acquisition), and because I'm too emotionally attached, I would prefer it if someone else, experienced in this process could handle the negotiations on my behalf.
Where do I find that person? Are there any reputable VC firms that would handle this? Both, the negotiations + legal. I'm US west coast based if that makes any difference. Feel free to DM me some contacts.
