Successfully selling a business or transferring it to family members can be extremely challenging, especially when the owner is also focused on the day-to-day activities of running and growing the business. Each sale or transfer situation is unique, reflecting the diversity of business owners and enterprises. One theme recurs, however: the magnitude of this transition. Selling or transferring a business has critical ramifications for the owner, the owner’s family, employees, and community. Because experience can often be the best teacher, this session highlights the experiences of several business owners who have tackled this critical transition. Gain insights and strategies that address the challenges business owners may face when deciding what the next step is for their business. Mr. Drossman will draw insights from his work with closely-held family businesses and from stories featured in “The Owner’s Journey,” a whitepaper prepared by the Eugene Lang Entrepreneurship Center at Columbia Business School, in collaboration with Bank of America Private Bank.
