In this episode of Both Success And Integrity With Bessi Graham, Bessi discusses the many options which are at your disposal in how to get your business more attractive to potential investors. 

The data tell us about how a build to sell approach will give you an edge because a growing number of businesses are looking to acquisitions to achieve their growth targets. In fact, a recent polling shows that 46% were looking to buy assets, and a further 39% are seeing these investments as a way to position themselves more competitively, to improve sustainability, and resilience. This shows that an increasing number of businesses are realizing that achievement of growth is not simply going to be them acquiring new customers, but it’s going to be the acquisition of other businesses, to help them grow, and to break into new markets.  So positioning yourself in this way is important because there will be a growing number of opportunities where potential investors will be looking at your business as a way for them to grow.
