You've run your business for years.  Maybe it['s time to retire, maybe you want to move on and do other things or you feel your business is growing and you want to find someone who can take it to the next level.  Regardless of your reason for succession, in this workshop, we'll be exploring some of the basic elements around selling your business, how to determine if you are ready to sel, and provide a step-by-step guide you can follow.

 

 

We'll be answering the following commonly asked questions:

 

How do I know if I'm ready t sell?

Where do I go to get my company valued?

Who do I talk to about selling my business?

I have someone who wants to buy my business but what do we do now?

What do I need to prepare for my sale?

How do I find a buyer for my business?

What do I do if I want to sell to employees?

An increasing number of clients are approaching us, asking about assistance with the sale of their business or the transition to a family member.  Smaller communities in our regions see many businesses shutting down, which impacts the entire community.  In many cases, the business owners are unaware of their options or uneducated about how to go about selling their business.

 

The Succession Planning project aims to raise awareness of relevant issues, educate business owners and their circles of influence, and provide access to additional resources through our vendors, SuccessionMatching.com, Alberta Business Family Institute, and Commercial Ventures.

 

We serve all rural entrepreneurs within our service regions and all stages of business development.
