Our M+A and Business Growth Strategies practices are partnering with local corporate, transactional and financial professionals to present a series of seminars designed for business owners that offers preparation tools and strategic insights for building your business with an eye toward an eventual sale transaction as part of your exit strategy.

Whether you are many years away or only a few years out from preparing for a sale, a successful exit takes time and has many steps. This series is designed to help you build your business the right way, keep your business assets protected, and ultimately maximize the value of a sales transaction when you’re ready.

Segmented into four one-hour seminars, this series will help you better understand terms and processes, and help you adopt best practices for growth by focusing on four areas that matter most:
