Buyout Entrepreneurship and M&A: Key Drivers of Growth

Powered by Transeo, European Association for SME Transfer

Buyout entrepreneurship is one of the ways to unleash the entrepreneurial potential of individuals but remains unknown in many countries. Buying an existing company is a less risky alternative and brings many advantages (existing client base, staff and know-how). Research also shows that businesses that are taken over by a new entrepreneur deliver higher performance and innovation. Also, encouraging entrepreneurs to grow their business not only internally but also externally, i.e. by acquiring an existing firm should be more promoted to stimulate growth.

During that session, Transeo will share insights on buyout entrepreneurship and external growth by acquisition. Transeo will also give the floor to experts from Bahrain to better understand the current situation and challenges on that specific issue. Also good practices stimulating successful business transfers and buyout entrepreneurship will be presented (SOWACCESS from Belgium and Reempresa from Spain).
