What We Do

A proprietary process to assess and plan improvements in the areas a privately held business must address to sell successfully in 3 to 5 years.

Industry

Consulting

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Trustworthiness/Stability
#2 - Control by the client
#3 - New ideas and skills that they don't have now

Our Target Audience:

Small business owners with companies between $5,000,000 and $25,000,000 in sales. They are typically Baby Boomers with 15-25 years in their industry, financially successful and skilled managers, accustomed to controlling their own destiny, but relatively humble and realistic about their own limitations

Color Preferences

Current company logo colors are PMS Blue 295 and Red 202. We should probably stay in or near that pallette for when the company logo (see www.mpninc.com) and product brand are on the same page.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

The cover of my book, "11 Things You Absolutely Need to Know About Selling Your Business" (view at Amazon) has a road into the distance. Not particularly original, but gets the idea across.

It's getting very difficult. Many thanks to those who have been so cooperative in doing revisions. I'm a consultant and coach to business owners, and I've shown Logo Tournament to about 20 people just since this contest began. Whomever doesn't finish first with us, I hope you get lots and lots of other work from our referrals.

I note that lots of contests maintain many, many concepts right to the end. We are using the process to screen only those we are really considering. I hope that doesn't hurt anyone's scores.
