Community Futures

Join us for a working session to learn what you can do to beat the odds. Venture Connect works with Business Owners to Plan, Prepare and Package their business before and after it is listed with a realtor or business broker. We will help you get your business ready for sale, understand your exit options, and ensure your business is exposed to the right target market, maximizing its value when you sell.
Research shows that the average time to sell a business is growing. In 2006 it was 8 months and now this has grown to a year or longer. A CIBC study concludes the owners of half of all small and medium sized businesses in Canada are set to retire over the next decade.

Who will buy all these businesses? What can you do to improve your return from a sale?
Join us for this exciting presentation!
