Why this conference?
More and more people are aspiring to become owner-managers or entrepreneurs rather than managers in large companies. One way to realise your entrepreneurial potential is to take over an existing company through a management buyout or management buy-in. Given the huge number of company founders who will retire in the coming decade, management buyouts or buy-ins might well be fruitful avenues to entrepreneurial success.
After two successful editions with over 500 participants, the third edition of this conference will also provide a blend of practical experience and academic insight into the steps you need to take for a successful buyout or buy-in. People who have successfully followed their dreams and bought into companies share their stories, along with academics providing backgrounds on the best approach to tackle this exciting challenge. This event offers you an excellent opportunity to reflect on your own entrepreneurial aspirations and to prepare your own buyout case.
Schedule private meet-ups
Schedule personal sessions with brokers, investors, financial advisors, and bankers during the conference to ask your personal questions and get started. These sessions will provide insights on:

We welcome you from 12.30pm onwards with coffee and sandwiches. The conference starts at 1.00pm and ends at 8.00pm, followed by a reception. For an overview of the full programme, please download the brochure 'Buy Your Own Company Conference'.
