In this seminar, you will learn the basics of how to choose a path for ownership succession in your business. We will take a close look at four different ways of selling a business: to an outsider, to family members, to managers or to the larger group of employees. While we will get into some technical details, including an overview of the business valuation process, the focus will be on stories about each path, told via video by owners who have been involved in the sale of Vermont businesses. Our lead presenters will be accountant Jeffrey Graham of Graham & Graham, P.C., attorney Clarke Atwell of Gensburg, Atwell & Greaves, PLLC, with Don Jamison and Matt Cropp of the Vermont Employee Ownership Center.
Attendance is free, but limited to business owners and key managers.
Sponsors of the event include: the Regional Development Corporations of Vermont, the Vermont Small Business Development Center, Vermont Manufacturing Extension Center, Northern Community Investment Corporation and the Vermont Employee Ownership Center, with funding provided by the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development.
