Buying a Business

Wal-Mart. McDonalds. Starbucks.

What do they have in common? Well, for one, they are businesses that were not started and grown from scratch by their original founders.

No, they were businesses started by others and then bought by ambitious and talented entrepreneurs who then propelled them to a new stratosphere of growth.

And while high profile, statistically they are not atypical.

Census Bureau statistics show that a purchased business is eleven times more likely to still be in business 5 years from time of purchase as compared to those started from scratch.

However, for most entrepreneurs and business owners, the business “transaction” path is far too often overlooked as a high-quality strategic alternative.

For over 20 years, Growthink has advised entrepreneurs and executives seeking the right strategy and capital partners to effect a business purchase and / or sale transaction.

And the breadth and depth our consulting practice, with dozens of projects “live” at any give time, provides us with a unique creativity and imagination to envision and articulate a business’ future value.

Doing so credibly, of course, is normally the driving factor as to whether or not a transaction gets done, and on what terms.

We look forward to learning more about your business purchase and / or sale opportunities, and to discussing how Growthink can help turn them into reality.
