Business owners are experts at running businesses. They aren’t experts at selling them and they most definitely aren’t experts at sourcing people who would want to buy the business.

In this episode, Mark Dorman interviews Craig Kohrs, one of the founding partners of Velocity Capital Partners. Craig shares his experience of selling his previous business, and how he and his business partner Ryan Mifsud are now involved in a mission-driven venture called “We are the Ripple”. He shares the importance of having a great team, trusting them to run the business, and giving them the tools to be successful. He also gives some advice for business owners who are looking to exit or grow their businesses.

Craig dives into:

  • How he started his own family business
  • The story behind how his team acquired and built TMG Performance Products
  • How he ran his business before planning his exit
  • Why you should hire exit planning experts to help make your exit successful
  • The goal of “We are the Ripple” to provide funding and create clean water access for schools and communities in Africa
  • And more
