Is Your Business Ready for Sale?

What Makes a Business Attractive to a Seller? It’s a question we hear often, but it’s one that almost always comes with a series of follow-up questions. What steps can be taken inside the business to make it more attractive for a sale? How do I know that my business is ready for the transaction dance? It’s never too soon to consider the answers to these questions. Join us for a panel discussion about the considerations business owners and C-level executives should keep in mind before an exit – even if that exit is years away from fruition. Open to CEOs, Presidents, CFOs and Finance Managers for privately held businesses. Seating is limited. Request your invitation at www.preppingtheprincess.com The fee to attend the event is $35, which will be donated to LaunchPad2x.com, a 501(c)(3) organization which provides mentoring and training for future CEOs.
