Business succession

We at Community Futures recognize the importance of succession planning – of the need for services and resources for business owners wanting to retire from their business.  That is why we partnered with 6 Community Futures offices to form a subsidiary, Venture Connect, a corporation that is governed by a 12 member Board of Directors.

For comprehensive succession planning services please contact:

In 2006 it was estimated that more than 40% of small business owners planned to leave their businesses in the next five years, and more than 70% within the next ten years. Yet up to 71% of these business owners didn’t have a plan on how to exit their business.

We call these individuals “Generation Exit” – a whole generation of business owners wanting to exit the small business world. Are you one of these people?

It is anticipated that over the next 20 years there will be many more businesses than there are owners and employees – resulting in the potential closure of many small businesses throughout our area. This will have an impact on employment, economic output, business formation and the availability of services in our region.
