Board of Advisor / Director Planning //
Is it time to bring in some expert advice to help you think through your business’ next phases of growth? Red Idea has worked with many clients to help identify which structure makes the most sense for their business (Board of Directors vs. Advisory Board), identify key differences between each structure, and to identify industry experts who can add targeted advice on a quarterly basis.
M & A / Exit Planning //
Many entrepreneurs have a strong desire to exit their businesses one day. We can work with you to identify your ideal business exit scenario and how you can maximize your planning in the short and medium term to help make that exit more possible.
We will discuss industry standard multiples for exits, at what size range larger entities begin to look for acquisitions, how a sale-of-company process works, as well as other exit opportunities including merging with a synergistic brand or a stock or asset sale of your business.
