Corporate Executives

 

You  have successfully climbed the corporate ladder, only to find out that you are really a pent-up entrepreneur. You are at a stage in your  life where you have gained a vast amount of experience managing people, understanding financials, operations, sales & marketing and have built up your net-worth. You are ready to invest in yourself. You want to put these best practices you have acquired into a good profitable company that could benefit from some “fresh” blood, new ideas and energy. 

 

 After searching the for sale web sites for 6+ months and getting frustrated with looking at retail, franchise start-up or non-profitable listings, you realize that a different approach is needed to find a business on the "hidden" market, those non-advertised businesses where the owner has had some thoughts about selling their business but has not listed "for-sale".  These business owners would like your experience and financial capabilities, and would be willing to start a conversation.

 

Our methodologies not only will find you multiple possible deals, but help you throughout the buying process. Whether you are looking at a particular local geographic location or at several locations around the country, we can help you gain your independence and achieve your dream of entrepreneurship.

 

 

Ex-Business Owners

 

Many of our clients come to us a couple of years after their sale of their business wanting to get back into the game. They are type A individuals who thought that they would quasi-retire after their sale, only to find out that living life in this manner is not fulfilling. After searching the business for sale web sites for 6+ months and getting frustrated with looking at retail, franchise start-up or non-profitable listings, they engage us to help them find a good profitable business to buy and continue their journey.

 

Business owners who are looking to sell, like their experience and financial capabilities and are very willing to start a conversation, but first they have to find the right one. These clients understand the importance of having an intermediary on their side who can find them multiple opportunities anywhere in the country and help them throughout the buying process.

 

 

Companies - Growth through Acquisition

 

Let’s face it, growing your company by “fighting” your competition is the hard way. Whenever you get a competitive advantage, your competitors copy you. When you “steal” their customers or employees, they do the same to you. When you launch a new marketing program, it takes time and money before you know whether it succeeds or fails. This is business-as-usual for the typical owner.

 

The street-smart owner uses a better way to grow a company and increase personal net worth: Acquire the competition or another type of business, either in your area or in a new market.

 

When done correctly, growth by acquisition is faster, safer, cheaper and more profitable than increasing revenue by organic growth. Of course, buying a business is risky. But it doesn’t have to be, not when you have the right guidance and experience on your side.

 

The opportunities are out there for the street-smart business owner:

  • Very few businesses use a growth through acquisition strategy unless they “luck” into by a chance meeting
  • The financing is there as the banks love to loan to industry experienced business owners
  • You have the unique competitive advantage over financial buyers (usually the seller’s only alternative) as many expenses can be eliminated due to your existing infrastructure

 

Our ​methodologies not only will find you multiple possible deals, but help you throughout the buying process. Whether you are looking at a particular local geographic location or at several locations around the country, we can help you achieve your goals.

 

 

Family Offices and Passive Investors

 

Many high net worth individuals/families have started to look for alternative investments for their hard earned portfolios. The stock market is risky and interest rates and returns from “safer” investments have been at all-time lows for many years. They are looking to invest in a smaller company so that a family member has a chance to come in as a leader or to find a company where there is a quality management team in place but where that team is not in a financial position to buy the company.

 

The big family offices and Private Equity firms can afford to have a dedicated person/team on staff that is taking the time to find opportunities, qualify, construct and negotiate their deals and get to the closing table. You do not.

 

Our methodologies not only will find you multiple possible deals, but help you throughout the buying process. Whether you are looking at a particular local geographic location or at several locations around the country, we can help you.
