Meet Us

Our approach to M&A is unique,just like our team.

We hated the “old school” way of M&A when we went through the process ourselves, so we decided to do something about it.

Today we’re redefining what’s possible in the M&A space. A tribe of trailblazers, disrupting the way things have always been done by thinking differently, challenging the norm, and staying hyper-focused on the industries we know and love.

Why We're Different

We’re tearing up the old rule book and forging a new breed of M&A.

Hyper-focused on founders.

We work exclusively founder-direct. Our team understands the long hours and hard work it takes to build an agency – because we’re entrepreneurs ourselves! We put your unique experience at the center of our approach.

Simple, personalized process.

Let’s face it, the old school way of selling your agency wasn’t working. 9 out of 10 agencies with other advisors don’t sell. We’ve created a system that turns that number squarely on its head.

Shorter timelines & higher success.

It shouldn’t take 9 months to sell an agency. Knowing the space inside and out helps. Our average transaction timeline is just over 4 months, and our close rate is over 90%.

Awesome
buyers.

Over 70% of our deals are sold through our existing database of national buyers. Simply put, there is nothing else like it in the marketplace.

Who We Serve

Forward-thinking entrepreneurs and industry disruptors are our speciality.
