Companies like Facebook sometimes don’t acquire companies per se.
Be a good egg. Make sure you and your co-founders develop your personal brands.

They acquire a team who’s product, platform or service may or may not fit into what they are doing, but they know the collective smarts of the team could be a huge asset to them.
It’s called an acqui-hire.
As your startup gets traction, consider another form of traction: not just the collective intelligence of your company, but the people, their personalities, and their personal brands.
Make sure you are branding yourself in a way that makes you even more valuable to the right company who’s not just looking for smarts, but humans who can express their humanity.
