Succession and transfer of business in Małopolska
The subject of succession is becoming more and more present in the realities of the Polish economy, especially in the center of its bloodstream, i.e. family businesses.
The results of the research carried out so far indicated a relatively low awareness among entrepreneurs in the field of business transfer and the related challenges. A significant problem may also be the fact that business owners and potential successors do not know where to obtain knowledge on this subject.
Another problem is the failure to adjust the support mechanisms to the needs of the succession process. This is due to, inter alia, relatively small number of studies (especially at the regional level), which would adequately indicate the areas in which it is necessary to implement specific support.
As a result, public administration bodies, both central and local, and business environment institutions are not fully able to provide entrepreneurs with the help they expect.
