Are you and your business prepared for what's next?

Online course | October 6 - November 10, 2022

Whether your exit is three years or three decades away, every business owner needs an exit strategy. Don’t let one of the “five D’s” of death, disagreement, disaster, disability, and divorce knock your business off course.

This 5-week online course will guide you through a business succession planning process to learn, leverage and plan for your transition. You and future leaders of the business will be prepared for the business succession event. You’ll learn the resources available and how to leverage them.

Most importantly, you will create your succession plan. If you desire outside professional assistance, this course will help you find it.

What you will get from this course:

  • Build your knowledge and the ability to create your business succession strategy
  • Learn with other business owners
  • Learn about the different options available to transition your business (i.e., third party, employee ownership, family, etc.)
  • Prepare a formal comprehensive succession plan
