---

Millions of small business owners across the country are nearing retirement age, most do not know what to do with their business, and they don’t know who to turn to for help. Lack of awareness about the exit planning process and options too often leads to unnecessary liquidation and closure.

Your response to this survey will help business service providers, civic leaders and policy makers better understand the scope and scale of the challenge and its potential impact on our economy.

This will take less than 10 minutes to complete. All individual survey responses will be confidential. Only the aggregated, anonymous data will be available publicly.

Thank you for taking the time to answer the survey!
