Getting ‘Hitched’ in Business Seminar – 6 November 2014

We continue our practical seminar series with a presentation about going into business with other people.

What is this seminar about?

Going into business with others can be one of the most rewarding things you do – whether they be family, friends or third parties. Sharing the highs and spreading the lows is much more fun.

But it can also be one of the most expensive things you do. So often we see people build significant wealth within their businesses, only to see it destroyed when they fall out with their fellow entrepreneurs. The key reason things go wrong is that the parties fail to agree on their expectations at the outset, and fail to plan the exit.

In this seminar you will learn how to get into business with people in a manner that will enable you to stay in business successfully, and then get out with your fair share of what you have built.

Among other things, we will take you through:-

  • The importance of setting expectations
  • Identifying and managing contributions
  • Funding growth
  • Choosing an appropriate structure
  • What documents you require, and the key terms that must be included – including Partnership Agreements, Shareholders Agreements, Constitutions, Exit Deeds, etc
  • How to plan and implement a ‘clean exit’
  • Particular issues for family businesses
  • A framework for clearing the air – not just meeting requirements

Ultimately this seminar is about preserving your relationships with your business partners.

What you will get?

You will get:-

  • A quality breakfast
  • A talk full of practice insights that go beyond the obvious
  • Access to our comprehensive checklists
  • A copy of our detailed slides and technical paper
