Succession Ready

Preserve Your Legacy

The Succession Ready program is designed to help small business owners develop and navigate a successful succession plan for their businesses. This series of five three-hour educational workshops are provided for free to participants.

The program is fully-funded through a generous grant from Rhode Island Commerce. In addition to RI Commerce, ICIC is one of five strategic partners in this initiative, which also include Babson College, Community College of Rhode Island, and New Majority Capitol Foundation. The program began in August 2022 with an inaugural cohort of 19 businesses.

Whether business owners are planning to hand over the reins to their next of kin, to an employee, or to sell it, the Succession Ready program informs and empowers leaders to develop the right strategic succession plan for them.

Succession Ready is currently for Rhode Island-based business owners but is considering expanding the program in 2023.


The application for the Succession Ready program is currently closed. Please visit the application site for updates.
