What you will learn

Lesson 1: Buy vs. Build

Start from scratch or buy a business? Hint: To accelerate your entrepreneurship journey, buying a business is faster, easier and more sustainable. It is way easier to get a business loan with something generating revenue and profit than building from scratch.

Lesson 2: Starting your search

What is the best strategy to find that perfect business? Hint: The best deals aren't listed. Our buyer search engine brings deals to your inbox

Lesson 3: Building your acquisition team

This is a team sport. Who do you need in your lineup? Hint: A lawyer is a must.

Lesson 4: Financing your acquisition

You will finance your business with equity (down payment) and debt (lending). How does it work and what are your options? Hint: You will need at least 20% down to make borrowing options work. We can help you get a business loan with our financing solutions.

Lesson 5: Making an offer

Your Letter of Intent (LOI) is a conversation starter and non-binding. What are the fundamental pieces of an LOI? Hint: Your first offer will get rejected.

Lesson 6: Due Diligence and closing

Due Diligence includes a detailed review of operations, finances and legal. Discover what each stage entails. Hint: Expect another round of negotiations.
