Club E | Minneapolis: Real Acquisitions of Minnesota
September 5 at 11:15 am – 1:00 pm
Join Highland Bank and Club E | Minneapolis to go “behind the scenes” to talk about what really happens during an acquisition!
No, it’s not the latest reality tv show, it’s the latest EPI Chapter meeting topic! In a joint meeting with Club Entrepreneur, we’ll be going “behind the scenes” to talk about what really happens during an acquisition. We’ll be convening a panel of business owners and experts, some of whom have experienced both successful and unsuccessful acquisitions during their careers, to talk about the hands-on reality of buying another company. Many mergers and acquisitions are not successful, and we’ll be sharing a checklist of factors you’ll need to consider, including rationale, budgets, culture, staffing and more. For a real-world look into this issue, join Club E and moderator Julie Keyes, President of the Twin Cities EPI Chapter.
