Our story: Our mission is to change the way individuals get into business by helping them purchase businesses from their family, current employer or third party. This first step in this process is to help ensure that both the buyer and seller understand the business transition process.
CFIB’s Nov. 2018 report titled, “Getting the Transition Right,” shows that only 8% of current business owners have a formal succession plan. Developing a formal succession plan continues to be a challenge for SME owners in part because of the high cost of access to good succession planning resources.
Facilitated by a member of the SuccessionMatching team, buyers and sellers go through a standardized one on one process to create a formal succession plan and get advice regarding certain parts of the process. This is perfect for individuals just starting the process, or those who have begun and are feeling overwhelmed. Participants will learn about the different types of transition, how to engage with community stakeholders and who is available to them, and pointed in the direction of further beneficial resources.
