Overview

What happens when the owner of a small family company in the French Alps wants to retire, but cannot find a successor to continue the activity? Is this niche business condemned to disappear… or can it be taken over by a foreign investor looking for new locations? Every year in Europe, around 150 000 companies are not being transferred due to system inefficiencies, threatening 600 000 jobs. C-TEMAlp rose to the challenge of making business transfers in the Alpine Space more effective. It fostered business renewal by bringing together actors from different regions to research, test and jointly define new business transfer services.
