Consider whether you have the qualities for buying into a business.
A prominent feature in changing small company ownership into the next century will continue to be the venture-backed management buy-in (MBI). Not all MBI candidates are suitable, and you should think about whether you have got what it takes. Typically, a successful MBI is the fulfilment of a talented, entrepreneurial managing director's dream. Sometimes they have already built their own business, which has been sold on, and are now looking to regain that fundamental spirit and sense of purpose which goes with ownership.
