Buying a Business: Essential Steps

How to Buy a Business

Course Description

Starting a business from scratch isn’t the only path to entrepreneurial success. Buying a business allows you to skip the gruelling start-up phase and leverage the client list, reputation and supply chain your predecessor has built. But with so many options out there, how do you decide which business to take an interest in?

As British Columbia’s population ages, there are more opportunities than ever before to buy an existing business. Join Paul Savage from Pacific M&A and Business Brokers Ltd. as he teaches you how to assess a potential business, what the purchasing process will look like, and the key steps you need to take to get started.

What Will I Learn?

  • Decide between buying a business and starting one

  • Know what to look for when conducting your search

  • Determine if a business is suitable for you

  • Understand due diligence and why it’s important

  • Use proven techniques to close a deal
