If you’re a business owner and you’re looking to raise capital and/or sell your company… please do not be afraid to admit if you are not aware of exactly whom you should be talking to.
You´ll have challenges (some call them problems, we call them opportunities). Take it as a strategy game where you compete with everyone else. Think that life is like the game of Monopoly and that everything goes back inside the box once the game ends. You included. It doesn´t matter how large the company you have built is, what´s important is the road, the good you have done while travelling it, the people you have helped grow and how you have enjoyed it.
If you have small goals, you will get small results. If you have big goals, you will get big results. Since you have to create goals anyways, then why not big ones? Of course, in the long term, although it seems like the other way around, everything will become easier when you work the big goals in mind.

At Calder Associates we understand that in the face of a corporate operation the valuation is a negotiating tool. Not only should we show value created in the past (as do the majority of our competitors) but also the ability to create future value in the business. Being the Market Value.
