Working with you to plan a successful business exit

We specialise in supporting owners of small to medium size companies where an exit is on your agenda in the next two to five years, in the form of a sale to another company or an investor, or an ownership transfer to your management team. To get there you need help with one or more of your planning, leadership, growth and succession.

You have built your own business and a great team with it. You’ve survived – even thrived – over the last few years and whilst you don’t want to sell up just yet, you don’t want to go through another downturn.
It’s time to plan how and when you will leave the business.

At some point in the future, you will no longer own or run your business. How do you want that to happen? Do you want to leave it ‘to see what happens’ or put in place a plan to give you the best possible outcome?
It’s time for a long-term plan.

If you are an agency, consultancy or IT business looking to build value and sell your business in the next two to five years for between £1m and £5m, we have the tools, resources and experience to help you.
It’s time to consider what comes next.

If you struggle with aspects of planning your business, leading your team, identifying growth opportunities or focusing on an exit plan, talk to us. We bring ideas, support, structure, questions, personal guidance, experience and energy needed to help you drive your business forward with your end goals in sight.
