FROM OUR SPONSOR


   
BUSINESS LEADERS AND EXPERTS GATHER AT KSU FOR SPECIAL PROGRAM
 
Entrepreneurship through Acquisition (ETA) Program focuses on buying a business for a start-up or to grow an existing business.
 
Starting a business from scratch isn't the only path to entrepreneurship - a rapidly growing trend is entrepreneurship through acquisition. It's also an alternative way to grow an existing business. Whether you are interested in becoming a small business owner or are an existing business owner looking to grow through acquisition, this program is for you!
 

UGA SBDC at Kennesaw State is hosting the Entrepreneurship through Acquisition (ETA) program on Tuesday, April 25th at the KSU Center. Designed for those who want to start a
business or grow an existing one, this program will reveal that buying a business is an exciting path to entrepreneurship and it can be far less risky and easier to finance than starting one.
 
Expert acquisition professionals and entrepreneurs who have successfully acquired a company will discuss topics including the search process; assessing and valuing targets; dealing with sellers; financing the deal; due diligence; post-acquisition issues and more. 
 
 
TUESDAY, APRIL 25TH
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM 
 
Location:
KSU Center, Room 400
3333 Busbee Dr. NW, Kennesaw, GA 30144 
 
 
Who should attend: 
Anyone interested in buying a business or existing business owners looking to grow their business.
Cost: 
$99 per attendee includes breakfast, networking lunch and all materials (Limited Seating Available). 
 
EARLY BIRD SPECIAL: REGISTER BY APRIL 1 FOR JUST $70 - 30% OFF WITH PROMO CODE ETA30!
