I’ve been learning more about start-ups recently and have noticed a lot of them want to be acquired. Why is this? Could they also choose to grow their business?

The same reason that you might make paintings with the goal of selling them instead of amassing a huge art collection.

When you start a business, you own it. If you can sell it for a lot of money, you get an easy out and a lot of money, and then you don’t have to care what happens to the business after that.
