What does Covid-19 Mean for Valuation in your Community Heading into 2021?

Using data from multiple resources, our guest speaker, Sean Hutchinson, addresses the potential for one of the biggest economic disruptions in history and makes the case that cities are standing on what he refer to as a “burning platform” — but may not know it. According to recently gathered estimates, there are approximately 3.5 million boomer owned/operated businesses in the US, employing an estimated 72,000,000 full-time workers. The total enterprise value of these businesses is approximately $13-15 trillion. As point of reference, the enterprise value of baby boomer owned businesses is five times greater than the market value of Amazon, Apple and Google, combined.
