Currently, almost 150,000 companies are officially looking for a successor through the Chamber of Industry and Commerce. The statistics show that there is a great need for company succession. But how do you find such a successor and what exactly should he be able to do, and above all: Who actually buys such a company when the question is: company successor wanted?

Company successor wanted – what should he / she be able to do?

The successor’s competence results from his or her personality, technical, methodological and social competence. Here you should write down exactly which characteristics have made your company and you so successful. In the case of smaller companies in particular, it is often of great importance that an entrepreneur is a specialist in the sector.

There is also methodological competence. On the other hand, this includes in particular the ability to use various aids to solve problems. There is also social competence as another typical requirement for a successor is the ability to deal with people. Especially if this is part of the succession process, if the successor tries to maintain or modify the relationship system inside and outside the company.

Company successor wanted – who should do it?

Buyers are typically divided into 3 categories:

The curious are typically people who want to start their own business and have little or no IT experience. So it is a good idea to buy a cheap small project.

Specialists are often looking for a specific project to implement their skills such as selling online goods or furniture.

Web entrepreneur are people who already have an existing business and want to buy a horizontal or vertical extension such as a blog or a chair online shop next to a bed.
