Joe suggests a simple strategy, "Get Bought by Google" !
He can, Jotspot was recently acquired by Google!
He then adds, "I would say don't try. Trying to be acquisition bait is the surest way of not being acquired. If you try to build a company that is fully independent and has a successful business model, that is the way to increase your chances of being acquired. "
"If you don't have options, buyers know it. I say that generically. You have to create options for yourself as an entrepreneur, and the way you create options is to create a stand-alone company."
