Business Ownership Seminar
‘The Search for a Good Exit: An Introduction to Ownership Succession Planning,’ will be offered on Friday, January 24, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at CCV Rutland, 60 West Street in Rutland, Vt. There is no cost for this event. Attendees will receive a copy of ‘An Owner’s Guide to Business Succession Planning’ and lunch will be served. Learn the basics on how to choose a path for ownership succession in your business. We will take a close look at four different ways of selling a business. While we will get into some technical details, the focus will be on stories about each path, told by owners who have been involved in the sale of businesses.
John P. Murphy, President of Atlantic Management Company, will give an overview of the mechanics of the most common ownership transition models. Bud Reed, a former owner of Timberline Interactive, will tell the story of the sale of that business. Attendance is limited to business owners and key managers. Sponsors of the event are CCV Rutland, the Rutland Economic Development Corporation, the Vermont Small Business Development Center and the Vermont Employee Ownership Center, with funding provided by the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development.
