Buying a Business-101

Some startups grow organically but many identify a complementary product or service that customers want, produced by a target company that seems to offer potential synergies through acquisition. Sometimes the companies’ Founders or executives know each other well and other times they require introduction. What is the best way to approach the target company? What are the steps needed to fully evaluate the target? Do you need audited financials? Are there key employees, relationships, or customers you must make sure stay in place? What is the appropriate negotiating strategy? How do you integrate the culture, products, processes and people to achieve the potential synergies? What are the most common areas of failure and how do you mitigate these risks? This webinar will help you be ready for your first (or next) acquisition.
