Your small business is waiting for you!


Did you know that 76% of Canadian business owners are planning to exit their business over the next decade — and 54% of them say their biggest challenge is finding the right buyer?*

Buying a small business could be your route to success! It’s more accessible than you may think — and #OwnersWanted can help you get where you want to go.

Launched by Futurpreneur, Canada’s only national non-profit providing financing, mentorship, and resources to young entrepreneurs aged 18-39, #OwnersWanted is a new  program that will get you ready to buy the small business of your dreams. It’s completely FREE, and if you already have a prospective seller in mind, you can both attend to get everything you both need to complete this transition together.

Over the course of program, you’ll learn how to:

  • – Find a viable business that interests you
  • – Approach and appeal to the business owners
  • – Put a deal together
  • – Practice negotiating and due diligence
  • – Close the deal in a mock negotiation process
  • – Structure and obtain the necessary funding


Once you’re done, you’ll know how to buy a business—and you’ll have a complete set of documents and skills you can use to close a great deal in real life!

Potential buyers AND sellers are welcome, so you can network and who knows? You may even find the perfect match in our sessions…

We’ve helped over 17,700 young entrepreneurs get their start — and you could be next! Get set up for succession success — join our info session on September 20 to learn more about our #OwnersWanted 2-day workshop, and / or sign up for the actual workshop in October!
