Your life’s work has been building your SME. And then the time comes: you want to sell it, transfer it, or enter into a merger. Detailed preparation is key to making the transition successful and profitable. This programme gives you the understanding and approaches you need to complete a satisfactory transfer or sale and a valuable opportunity to have your plans scrutinised by a board of lawyers, advisors, bankers and experts.
The SME Transition programme focuses on the essential insights you need to achieve a smooth transfer or sale of your company.
Each module finishes with specific assignments to apply to your own company. There are five modules that take you on a step-by-step journey – and an optional sixth module that covers family business transfers and sales. You’ll learn from guest speakers who’ve been through the journey themselves – and you’ll share experiences with fellow participants.
By the end of the programme, you’ll have a well-developed transition plan – which you’ll present to a panel of lawyers, advisors, bankers and Vlerick professors.
