5 Steps To Successfully Sell Your Business @ Launch Workplaces - Gaithersburg
Oct 26 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

As a business owner who wants to sell your company, the odds are against you. Only 20% to 25% of businesses sell successfully.

Selling a business is not like selling a house. There are many obstacles to a successful business sale, so it takes a lot of planning to identify the obstacles faced by business owners and overcome or minimize the effect of the obstacles.

If you are counting on the sale of your business for your retirement funds, monetizing the sweat equity you’ve expended in developing and running your business, or need to make sure your business is sellable, you don’t want to miss this session.

You’ll learn:

    • Why most businesses don’t sell successfully
    • How to identify obstacles to eliminate or reduce risk
    • Steps to successfully selling your business

This session identifies five steps to successfully sell your company.
