Starting to think about ownership succession for your business? This free seminar offers the opportunity to learn about the possibility of selling to your employees. Presented by Matt Cropp of the Vermont Employee Ownership Center and Lane Fury of the Cooperative Fund of New England, this seminar will give an overview of the two most common forms of broad-based employee ownership used for ownership succession: Employee Stock Ownership Plans and Worker Cooperatives. The session will also include a discussion of the process by which a sale to employees commonly occurs, with a focus on making financing work for employee groups of modest means. The event is free, but seating is limited, so please register ASAP. The seminar is co-presented by the Franklin County Industrial Development Corporation, Franklin County Regional Chamber of Commerce and Vermont Small Business Development Center.
