Founder & Owner Managed Businesses

Sell all or a portion of your business in order to create new freedoms, capitalize on opportunities and achieve success.


Founder & Owner Managed Business Considerations

Founders and owners often face a crossroads at the intersection of ownership transition and management succession:

  • finding a qualified buyer for the business;
  • educating themselves on the sale process;
  • identifying and training a successor;
  • retiring immediately to pursue other opportunities or passions;
  • staying involved but only in areas that provide a lot of energy;
  • receiving cash at closing to secure retirement;
  • retaining a small ownership position to get a “second bite at the apple”.
