Exit and Succession Planning – Nebraska Business Development Center – Kearney Center – Statewide

Business exit or transition planning for business owners who want to begin executing an exit from their business. NBDC’s program doesn’t replace owner advisors. We make everything the owner and their advisors do more valuable.


Develop an exit/transition plan that is unique to your situation—maximizing the sales value of the business or smoothing the transfer to next generation.
