The SpeedSim case study focuses on how mergers and acquisitions work in startup and entrepreneurial
environments. It describes how an intelligent East Coast engineer built an extremely
frugal company with a goal for acquisition and how the SpeedSim team masterfully executed and
maximized their return by starting, growing, and selling a company. The case analyzes how small
companies position themselves to be acquired and how an acquirer assesses a company. The case
can be used formergers and acquisition and exit discussions, aswell as for culture and organizational
behavior discussions for entrepreneurship curriculums.
