Existing Business Owners

I can help you transition your business to a worthy successor.

If you are a business owner contemplating an ownership transition, I encourage you to consider an aspiring Acquisition Entrepreneur as a potential next generation leader for your company. You have many options to consider, including working with a sell-side broker, selling to a financial buyer or buyout fund, or selling to a strategic acquirer.

While your current set of advisors can likely educate you on the options mentioned above, I can be a resource for you to weigh the Pros and Cons of a different alternative: hand-picking and mentoring a buyer who would be an owner operator.

Here’s how we can get started:

Initial Introduction

Introduction to ETA and how I may be able to help.

>> 30-minute call to discuss the potential benefits of working with an Acquisition Entrepreneur and how I can help.

Getting to Know You

Get to know you, your goals, and your aspirations.

>> 30-minute in depth discussion about your situation and desires and potential ways I might be able to help.

Working Together

Work with you to help match you to an aspiring entrepreneur.

>> As-needed calls to help connect you to potential acquisition entrepreneurs to build on your legacy.

Why Me?

I can be a neutral voice who, unlike other intermediaries, is not seeking financial gain.  My only goal is the opportunity to potentially introduce you to an acquisition entrepreneur that you feel comfortable taking the reins of your business.  

By working with me you won’t waste time negotiating with non-qualified candidates. Any acquisition entrepreneurs I bring forth will have already been vetted in many areas, including:

  • Having professional interests aligned with your goals for your successor
  • Carrying experience and/or expertise in areas that suit your business or industry
  • Securing commitments from investors who have the capital to close a deal
  • Exhibiting a passion for entrepreneurship and small business ownership
  • Possessing sufficient business education and ability
  • Willing to relocate and be present to lead the company’s day-to-day activities

As a retired entrepreneur, who like yourself has been blessed with the privilege of owning and leading a business, I am grateful to now have the opportunity to give back with my new calling and purpose in life:  Helping aspiring entrepreneurs buy businesses and build on legacies. If I can help you find the right buyer for your business, then my new endeavor will have been worthwhile.
