Taking over or continuing the activities of an enterprise as a collective

Ensuring the succession of a business can be a challenge. The cooperative or NPO model offers a range of opportunities, allowing the next generation to take the reins of an organization. The ability to adapt to business situations and to the market is a key advantage of the cooperative model.
Our consulting team will assist you in this change of legal structure without interrupting the activities of your organization.
