What people say about us

"Before I heard of Beacon, I was planning on closing up shop and laying off our two employees. Instead, I was able to sell my business to another photographer and my employees kept their jobs."

Lizzie R.

"I had no idea there was a market for landscaping operations. Beacon brought me 5 qualified offers by the second month. I signed an agreement with a buyer by the third month."

James K.

Owner of a Commercial Landscaping Business

"When my son wasn't planning to take over the store, I was concerned I'd have to liquidate. I'm glad I worked with Beacon.

Frequently asked questions

What is Beacon?

Beacon is a new, simple way to sell a small business.

How long does it take to sell?

We strive to get you competitive offers within 90 days. Depending on financing, it may take another 30-45 days to close. Many owners will stay on for another 30-60 days to ensure the next operator is set up for success.

How much is my business worth?

We value businesses based on seller's discretionary earnings. This is another way of saying the cashflow you receive as an owner of the business. This amount is typically multiplied by 2-4x depending on the business.

What type of businesses do you work with?

We focus on main street businesses based in the U.S. These businesses typically have 1 to 15 employees and revenues between $250,000 and $2,000,000.

How much do you charge?

We take a 5% commission when you sell your business, but it's completely free to test the waters.

How do you vet buyers?

We look at three big aspects for buyers. First, we look at their finances and credit history. Second, we look at their industry experience and background. Third, we run a background check and introductory call to ensure they'd be good culture fits.
