No risk, no reward.

Selling a business. It’s not easy. Nor is it painless.

  • “M&A 101” — an in-depth understanding of the process.

Why Attend


Every privately held business must transition ownership at some point.

While this is often the most important transaction in the life of a business, most business owners fail to properly prepare or understand what goes into a successful business transition.

This event will give business owners the knowledge and tools to plan for a successful business transition.
