Is your team ready to take it on?

We don’t just tick boxes for skill sets and personality scores. We want to know if they’ve got the passion.

It's our experience at Valloop that successful SMEs grow or fail on their entrepreneurial drive – a passion that can’t be taught or tick-boxed. So when we’re asked if an SME has the right capabilities, the right individuals to nail a buy-out, we suggest taking a step back. Aside from the paper skills of the people on your bench, first ask: how hard do they want it?

Some teams lack the appetite. Great people, central to your success, may be most comfortable taking direction or executing the task. Some may aspire, but lack that particular, dogged determination to keep slogging forwards, week after week.

Whether or not that’s what you see around your top table, you may have options – a strategic substitution, some coaching. If you find you’ve got people who have the motivation, they will overcome any gap in capability to get there.

We can help you assess whether it’s a route that’s viable for you, confidentially, before you rock that boat. Between us, our team has worked on more than 150 transactions in the SME sector, so we appreciate the people risks like few non-specialists can. We’ll be standing on the other side of the table as buyers, alongside your team, if you choose to move ahead with our support. But it’s in all our best interests to ensure your people have the right information, expectations and incentives from the start.

Why not ask us? See our contact options, or take five minutes to send us your vital statistics for an even more efficient conversation.
