the one that is buying?
Change of ownership offers you an alternative route to entrepreneurship: you can perfectly start your career as an entrepreneur by acquiring an already existing enterprise or business. The Enterprise Agencies will offer you advise also when becoming an entrepreneur through change of ownership. Our business advisors will assist you in familiarising yourself with the company that is for sale, and will evaluate together with you the risks and opportunities related to it.
When acquiring a company, you receive an already existing concept and clientele which helps you get a good start on your entrepreneurial journey. The entrepreneur selling their business is probably happy to act as your mentor for some time, if you agree to do so.
You can search for interesting companies through Suomen Yrityskaupat, for example.
Time for change of ownership?
In the case of generational change, the successor is considered to be a new entrepreneur, just like in other ways of becoming an entrepreneur and starting a business.
A successful acquisition
You should openly express your intention to sell your company, and it will be easier to find a buyer. Relate to the selling with reason, not feeling.
Time to quit
Closing down a business does not mean failure. Entrepreneurship can just be a phase in life after which something else will follow on later.
