New Business Transfer Support Service

NEW SERVICE

In response to our extensive study in 2017, titled “Portrait and Needs of Entrepreneurs,” we developed new specialized assistance programs to address two key issues for entrepreneurs: business succession and the integration of technologies in business practices.

The study revealed that in the next five years 34% of entrepreneurs in our territory want to leave their business, and 25% of entrepreneurs plan on closing their business permanently. Given this, it was crucial that our organization compensate for the lack of support in the sale and purchase of these companies. In conjunction with existing projects, like INDEX from Centre de transfert des entreprises du Québec (CTEQ) and ARTERRE, and the significant support from our partner the Fédération des caisses Desjardins du Québec, we are launching a new targeted and innovative service that will provide the necessary support and tools to ensure the sustainability of our companies.
