SXNM SuccessionMatching Ltd. has announced they are hosting a free online summit on SuccessionMatching.com from May 6-10, 2019. The summit, titled How to Buy or Sell a Business, aims to help small and medium-sized businesses transition ownership to new entrepreneurs. The summit will feature 20+ experts offering their knowledge, step-by-step guidance, and advice on what is involved to both sell and buy a business.

“Almost three in four small business owners plan to exit their business within the next 10 years. Successful business sales or transfers can save or even create jobs, keep local communities prosperous and continue to grow Canada’s economy. We need to do everything possible to ease these transitions,” said Corinne Pohlmann, Senior VP, National Affairs & Partnerships at the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB). “It is critical that small business owners have access to resources that can help guide them to successfully transfer their business to the next generation.”

“Small to medium-sized businesses are the lifeblood of their communities,” said Alison Anderson, Founder and CEO of SuccessionMatching.com. “Not only do we want to see business owners receive a fair return when they sell, but we also want to see new entrepreneurs prosper from the advantages of taking over a successful business,” she continued, “and we want to see communities continue to benefit from their services without interruption. We know the key is proper succession planning, which is why we’re hosting the summit to give business owners and buyers the information they need to successfully transition ownership,” said Anderson.

SuccessionMatching.com is a website where business buyers and sellers can connect with each other and with succession planning professionals. SXNM’s mission is to ensure farms and businesses in communities across North America continue to operate for generations to come.
