Change the way business changes hands.
Plan your succession on your terms
through worker ownership.
85% of business owners have no succession plan.
Two thirds of small businesses listed for sale never sell, and only 15% are passed on to family members. Acquisitions by larger firms or out-of-state buyers often lead to layoffs and restructuring.
But a local buyer may be closer than you think.
More and more owners are selling to those who know their business best—their employees. An employee buy-out gives you a competitive sales price, while securing a future for your legacy and the people who helped you build it.
Join over 7,000 employee-owned firms nationwide.
