Bellevue, Washington (PRWEB) January 21, 2014
BusinessPlanning.org (http://businessplanning.org) announces the launch of a strategic innitiative to work directly with business valuations experts to help all along the business planning and divestment value-chain from start to finish. Traditional business marketing, finance and operations consulting has been siloed between various individuals or teams, especially when it comes to small and medium-sized businesses looking to grow. This separate approach has often left many business owners with holes in their execution and growth trajectory which could be patched with a little more assistance from a “one-stop-shop.” BusinessPlanning.org is working to alleviate this issue by taking steps to work directly with business valuators and business merger & acquisition experts to assist anyone from a start-up to a large private business take their company to the next level.
“We want to provide an entire suite of services, not just the business planning phase when you start your company,” says Troy Jenkins, marketing manager for BusinessPlanning.org. “The struggle in the past has been that most businesses approach us either at the beginning of the process or right before they are intent on selling their company, wanting to know at that time what it is worth. Worth can be gauged, but many companies could do so much better. Our partnership outreach to businesses valuation professionals is meant to help fill in the gaps between current value of small businesses looking to sell and potential value of what they could sell for.”
In the past, the company has found that many business owners looking for a small business valuation are doing so because they’re expecting a large payout for the assets they’ve worked so hard to acquire a build. Unfortunately, many businesses’ values fall below what is expected or needed for the owner to retire comfortably or retire at all. The gap, in many instances, lies in the planning and execution stages. “By filling in the gap with proper planning, time and monetary investment and execution, we’re able to take businesses and double them in 18 to 24 months,” says Jenkins. It can sometimes triple or quadruple the value gained from a merger or acquisition when the business is finally sold.
As part of the company’s strategic foray into business valuation planning, they also recognize their need to network early with business owners who’re starting and operating businesses that may not have the need to sell them for many years. “The earlier we can get in with the business owner, the better chance we have of helping them maximize their value when comes time to sell,” Jenkins says. “My favorite part is seeing each individual business, how it runs and finding ways to tweak it and make things better. It’s like running multiple start-up companies at once.”
