Keep Retiring Rural Businesses Going with Employee Ownership

August 7, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Silver Tsunami of business owners seeking to retire soon creates an urgency for local communities to have conversations about employee ownership. Learn about employee ownership as a business succession strategy in this free START HERE webinar from New Growth CDC with the new Missouri Center for Employee Ownership (MOCEO).

REGISTER Learn how employee ownership transitions can work in even the smallest companies and the smallest towns.
