Starting a business from scratch isn’t the only path to entrepreneurship – a rapidly growing trend is entrepreneurship through acquisition. It’s also an alternative way to grow an existing business. Whether you are interested in becoming a small business owner or are an existing business owner looking to grow through acquisition, this program is for you!

This program will demonstrate that buying a business may be the best strategy for success. Buying a business can be far less risky, less expensive and easier to finance than starting one.

COST: $49.00
