Starting a business from scratch isn’t the only path to entrepreneurship – a rapidly growing trend is entrepreneurship through acquisition. It’s also an alternative way to grow an existing business. Whether you are interested in becoming a small business owner or are an existing business owner looking to grow through acquisition, this program is for you!
This program will demonstrate that buying a business may be the best strategy for success. Buying a business can be far less risky, less expensive and easier to finance than starting one.
Acquisition professionals and entrepreneurs who have successfully acquired a company will discuss:
- Acquisition Timeline
- Search Process
- Assessing and Valuing Targets
- Dealing with Sellers
- Working with Attorneys
- Financing the Deal
- Due Diligence
- Post-Acquisition Issues
- What to Expect in the First 100 Days
All programs of the UGA SBDC are open to the public on a non-discriminatory basis. Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities will be made if requested at least two weeks in advance.
