Selling your business to employees can have significant benefits for you, your employees, your company, and your community. Decades of research have shown that employee ownership can drive company productivity while rewarding the people who are contributing to the company’s success. It also provides a flexible tool for ownership transition that can help preserve the company’s mission and values, and it comes with many potential tax incentives for the selling owner(s) and the business.

“There are few times in life where you get to make choices that will have multigenerational impact. [Selling the business to employees] is one of those times.” – Kim Jordan . Co-Founder of New Belgium Brewing
