UNIVERSITY CENTER, MI – Small business owners, managers and human resources professionals are invited to a no-cost “lunch and learn” session from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, May 24, at Saginaw Valley State University to learn more about exit planning. The event is totally free, but registration is required.
The inaugural lunch and learn event will cover the key elements of a successful exit plan, including the business, personal, financial, legal and tax questions involved in transitioning a privately owned business, and identifying the eight “drivers” of business value.
“We believe that because all business owners will exit their businesses at some point in time, exit planning is simply good business planning,” said Michigan SBDC Business Growth Team Consultant Mike Gay. “The focus is on owner readiness. the sooner they start the process, the better.”
“Mike is an expert in exit planning. His insights into this important milestone in the business lifecycle are integral to our mission of helping all Michigan small businesses succeed, here in the Lake Huron region and beyond,” added Michigan SBDC Regional Director Chris Vieau.
Saginaw Valley State University’s Carmona College of Business is the host institution for the Michigan SBDC’s Lake Huron Region.
