I’ve owned and run a business on my own for 19 years. I’m looking to merge my business with another and there is a strong possibility of buying another business together in 2019. I’m looking for experience in…

  • Entering into a business partnership
  • What to plan for and expect to possibly go wrong.
  • Doing the right things up front to avoid potential pitfalls
  • Understand the good, bad, ugly of business partnerships

The CEO or Sponsor may want to attend to

  • Ease the pain of existing partnerships
  • Have interested in bringing equity partners into their existing business
