Keep Retiring Rural Businesses Going with Employee Ownership

August 7, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT

The Silver Tsunami of business owners seeking to retire soon creates an urgency for local communities to have conversations about employee ownership.

Learn about employee ownership as a business succession strategy and  how employee ownership transitions can work in even the smallest companies and the smallest towns in this free  webinar from New Growth CDC with Missouri Center for Employee Ownership (MOCEO).


Our presenter Keith Davenport is Executive Director of the Missouri Center for Employee Ownership, Inc. MOCEO is a Kauffman Foundation-funded 501(c)3 focused on building an ecosystem around employee ownership across Missouri and eastern Kansas. Before coming on board at MOCEO in 2021, Keith served in a number of nonprofit and public sector leadership roles with organizations such as Johnson County, Kansas Government, Johnson County Community College, and as a freelance human resources & strategic communications consultant for nonprofit organizations and c-suite executives. He earned his bachelor of science degree from Olivet Nazarene University, Master of Divinity from Nazarene Theological Seminary, and Master of Public Affairs from the University of Missouri’s Truman School of Government and Public Affairs.
