Selling a company is something most business owners will only encounter once in their lifetime. Over the years, we've met with thousands of business owners and noticed that the same questions and concerns come up repeatedly. To that end, we've launched our Well Capitalized Interview Series to help demystify the process of selling one's business. We interview private equity investors, business owners who have partnered with private equity groups, and professionals well-versed in legal, tax, accounting, environmental and other aspects of business transactions.
