If you have your eye on taking on a successful, established business from an owner manager in a smooth transition, then come along to Pitching for Management. We regularly have owners who are looking for someone who wants to share ownership with a view to handing control over to you in a managed process that gives the right financial and personal rewards to both parties.
Lots of owner managed businesses use us to look for the “successor owner” or “new co-founder” to join the current owner/s in helping the business to exploit its potential. The owner/s will be looking for someone who has a view to taking on full control/ownership in due course. So much less risky than a traditional Management Buy-In, our companies will enable you to get “under the bonnet” and share management responsibility before a full change of control takes place. In effect you will have the chance to do the very best sort of small Management Buy-Out – traditionally the type of venture deal that gets the best returns for management and any investors who come in on the deal.
At Pitching for Management we have lots of companies which have a social enterprise angle. These businesses will offer you so much more than just financial or equity rewards.
Typically they have highly profitable businesses which have an underlying social purpose, making the lives of people in disadvantaged groups better. The satisfaction you will feel by offering yourself to one of them will add a surprising sense of value to your commercial skills. The financial rewards can be pretty healthy too.
