[Promotion with Dealcierge]

Register Your Interest for Buy/Sell/Merge Your Engineering /Technology Consultancy or Company

IES-INCA is embarking on a pilot project to create a platform for IES members and Engineering/Technology Business owners to transact their companies. 
Each company has its own life cycle and at times when the Founders or key shareholders are no longer keen or able to actively run the company, it can be transacted and passed on to the next generation or new parties to continue the mission and vision of the company. 
The Company could also have significant assets both tangible and intangible ones which are of value and it would be a waste to see all the knowledge and know-how not be further passed on to the next generation of engineering or business leaders. 
For those looking to sell their company, we have a Promotion with Dealcierge (https://dealcierge.io/) - Get a Valuation Report and Investor Presentation to start your journey to get acquired, available for a highly discounted fee. A limited number of reports are available for this Promotion, while stock lasts!


Note: For any queries, please email incubate@ies-inca.com.
