Unlocking Business Potential: ExitBoards

ExitBoards by Virtualnonexecs

The transition from growth to sale is a critical phase for many companies where an overwhelming number of business owners find themselves unprepared for the journey. Recognising this gap, Virtualnonexecs.com is proud to introduce the ExitBoards Initiative, a strategic program designed to assist pre-transaction founders in maximising their business value and ensuring a smooth, profitable exit.

The Challenge

Statistics reveal that more than 75% of business owners regret their exit due to insufficient preparation and undervaluation. This often results from a lack of comprehensive understanding of their business’s true worth and the intricate process of selling. Without the right guidance, owners often struggle to make informed decisions, navigate legal and tax ramifications, and ultimately, achieve their desired financial and personal goals.

The Solution: ExitBoards

The ExitBoards Initiative by Virtualnonexecs.com offers a solution through a structured, expert-driven approach. By leveraging our vast network of over 19,700+ non-executives and chairs (many of whom are exited founders themselves), we aim to provide unparalleled support to business owners preparing for a sale or significant growth phase. Here’s how we plan to implement this initiative:

Program Structure

Step 1: Initial Assessment

  • Survey and Data Collection: Founders will complete a detailed survey covering their business’s current state and future goals. Minimal financial data will be collected to provide a clear starting point.
  • Expert Review: An advisory team will review the survey responses and financial information to tailor the advisory board to the specific needs of the business.

Step 2: Formation of the ExitBoard

  • Curated Advisory Team: Based on the initial assessment, we will form a customised ExitBoard comprising experts in legal, tax, valuation, financial planning, and strategic growth.
  • Professional Network: Utilise our extensive network to ensure each ExitBoard is equipped with the best advisors tailored to the business’s industry and specific challenges.

Step 3: Advisory Meeting

  • Comprehensive Discussion: Conduct a 60-minute Zoom meeting where the business owner and the advisory team discuss the business’s current state, challenges, and opportunities.
  • Interdisciplinary Approach: Each advisor will provide insights from their area of expertise, ensuring a holistic view of the business’s potential and strategies for improvement.

Step 4: Summary of Findings and Recommendations

  • Detailed Report: Post-meeting, the business owner will receive a comprehensive report outlining the advisory team’s findings and actionable recommendations to enhance cash flow, operations, and overall valuation.
  • Strategic Planning: The report will also include a roadmap for achieving an optimal transaction, ensuring the business is well-prepared for any market opportunities.

Benefits for Founders and Advisers

  • Expert Guidance: Access to seasoned professionals who can provide invaluable insights and advice.
  • Holistic View: An integrated approach that considers all aspects of the business, from legal to financial planning.
  • Time Efficiency: Streamlined process reducing the time and effort required for due diligence and strategic planning.
  • Increased Value: Strategies aimed at uncovering hidden value and optimising the business for a successful exit.

By bringing together the expertise of our network with a structured, strategic approach, Virtualnonexecs.com aims to revolutionise how business owners prepare for their future, ensuring they unlock their business’s full potential and achieve a successful, regret-free exit.
