Keys to achieving the highest value for your company, whether it is for building a foundation for growth and expansion or to professionally transition to a strategic or financial buyer is what you will learn.
A one day, information packed, interactive course to share with you the creative tactics from a twice US Entrepreneur of the Year, and team who have grown some of the fastest growing organizations in the US, bought and sold hundreds of companies and has the insight into what makes a company have the highest value and strongest foundation.
This is not one of those high-pressure seminars to pressure you to hire a business broker. It is to show you what the business brokers do not tell you. It is a conference on how to get your company ready for either a sale or to grow and expand and the steps as well as little known secrets to maximize value in the process. 90% of companies are not fit and in shape to do either. To grow and expand, the foundation needs to be solid. To sell, you don’t want to miss one single item that a buyer wants to see and is willing to pay for.
You would not try to renovate and expand your house if the foundation can’t support it, would you? Then why would you want to try to take on expansion and growth without getting ready with a solid foundation? If you do, you risk it crumbling.
Likewise, if you are ready to pass the baton after years of hard work, why would you want to leave hard earned money on the table? Of course, you don’t want to do that, but believe it or not, that is what 90%+ of sellers do. The vast majority of companies are simply not in the shape they need to be to obtain the highest value under the best structure and terms. It is like marketing a house with broken windows and peeling paint, where a small amount of time and money would have provided a quicker and higher sale.
