Life Cycle of Business, Part 3: Small Business Succession Plan

Long-term planning is an important part of a business. Of course, your marketing plan, financial plan, and over-arching strategic plans are important to the success of your company, but it is also valuable to have a vision for the far future, for the day when someone new will take over the company or step into a major leadership role. How do you plan for that future while ensuring that the company’s operations do not experience any major upheavals? Having a business succession plan is an essential component to ensuring longevity and success.

JEDCO and the Jefferson Chamber have teamed up to bring you a Prosper Jefferson seminar on Small Business Succession Planning.  Join us for the third of a three-part seminar series on the Life Cycle of a Business. We’ve invited three experts from a variety of industries to share their insight and advice on how to keep a company moving forward with as little disruption as possible, even if leadership changes hands. In this seminar, you’ll learn about:

  • Family business succession planning
  • Management/ownership transitions
  • Transferring ownership to the next generation
  • Retention of key personnel
  • Sales to third parties
  • Placing a value on your business
  • Case Study: A family-owned business shares their Succession Plan
