Small businesses form the backbone of our nation. They are the coffee shops, the auto mechanics, the plumbers, and the restaurants. They keep our world turning and, in doing so, employ over 60 million Americans.
Yet for too long, the owners of these businesses poured their life's work into starting and growing a small business only to liquidate and close up shop when it was time to retire.
On the other side, hundreds of thousands of new businesses are started each quarter. Nearly half are closed within the first 5 years. They struggle to acquire customers and generate profit.
Our goal is to make it easier to buy and sell a small business. We'll enable the current generation to retire soundly, while the next can unleash their entrepreneurial spirit.
