Business Legacies Initiative is a research and innovation initiative exploring how to:
- address succession and transition challenges facing small business owners,
- support non-profits to explore business acquisition as a social enterprise strategy, and;
- ensure that essential goods, services and employment provided by local businesses remain in communities.
The goal of the initiative is to understand the challenges and opportunities for business to community business transition; develop processes, resources and training to assist; and identify initial pilots to support through the process.
Take the Survey
we are looking to hear from both non profit and small businesses. The survey is 10 minutes or less (we promise) and results will help develop approaches and resources to transition small businesses to non profit and community ownership:
