SILVERDALE — The Kitsap Business Forum will present “Business Built to Sell,” led by Dan Martin of Seattle SCORE, on Feb. 12, 7:30-9 a.m., at the Morgan Stanley office at 2011 Myhre Road, Suite 301.
The forum will focus on how to structure your business with the intention of selling it for a profit. Martin, president of the Greater Kingston Chamber of Commerce, co-founded a book publishing business with his wife, Nancy, in 1976. He boot-strapped the small start-up out of his garage and grew the company to $10 million in annual sales before selling the company to his employees in 2007. He remains a member of the company’s board of directors and now volunteers for Seattle SCORE.
The Kitsap Business Forum is sponsored by the Silverdale Chamber of Commerce; Dave Mitchell, Morgan Stanley; and the Bremerton Chamber of Commerce. Panera Bread will provide coffee and bagels. RSVP to (360) 692-6800, or www.BusinessBuiltToSell.eventbrite.com.
