Julie on Quad City Television

Prior to the results being released of the State of Owner Readiness Survey, Julie had a chance to talk about it on Quad City Television.



Last year, The Exit Planning Institute, along with various partners from the Twin Cities Metro Area, including Keyestrategies, combined their resources in an effort to assess and understand the State of Owner Readiness™ to transition privately-held small and middle market businesses. There are 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 every day and this generation owns 63% of privately held businesses in the United States. However, recent studies show that 3 out of 4 business owners “profoundly regretted” their decision to sell within one year of exiting due to lack of readiness. The State of Owner Readiness Survey™ is a national survey used to poll the owner readiness in the middle market. Our team of partners created a local survey to poll the owners in the Twin Cities Metro Area so the unique needs of the business landscape can be segmented and understood.

Results can now be seen from this survey here:


According to the Quad City Television website:

Quad Cities Community Television is a programming entity managed by the Joint Powers Commission – Quad Cities Cable Communications Commission. The commission is comprised of two commissioners from each of our four member cities. QCTV provides information on city government, local sports, and community activities for the northern Twin Cities suburban cities of Andover, Anoka, Champlin, and Ramsey. The video programming and information is presented via local cable channels 15, 16, 18, and 19 on the cable TV system owned and operated by COMCAST. QCTV was able to launch their first HD channel which you can find on 859!

Channel 16 is an exclusive government channel for each city we serve and provides cablecasts of local municipal meetings and our signature program – News and Views, featuring city services and activities. In addition, these local channels display an electronic bulletin board containing information regarding council agendas and city events.

All four cities receive the same community channel 15 with local programs and channel 18 programmed by the Anoka-Hennepin School District. Informational channel 19 is a community bulletin board that displays upcoming community events.
