The story of a company and of its entrepreneur can be easily confused. Each trajectory, with its successes, mishaps and lessons learned forges a unique identity that is indistinguishable between creator and creation.
Inevitably however, there comes a time when the two stories need to take separate paths, out of respect for the company and for the entrepreneur, so that the company can evolve and stand alone.
The company must become self-sustaining, an autonomous entity, with new leaders that steer it toward the future. This represents the greatest possible tribute to the legacy of the entrepreneur and to the potential of the company.
The entrepreneur meanwhile has the right – the duty, even – to live new experiences, in which they can dedicate more time to themselves. Perhaps a new enterprise or the desire to spend more time with family.
The mission of INWI is to ponder, prepare and plan “Your company after you”: capturing values that explain your success, and identifying the challenges for the future, in order to design the transition of the company’s leadership.
But “Your company after you” is also a cry to the entrepreneur: to become the priority and put their interests above those of the company.
Our expertise is in the highest quality integration of these two transitions: new leadership for the company and a new start for the entrepreneur. To ensure that, without failing either side, the future does justice to both sides’ history – and their potential.
