Our mission is to advance American small businesses

Small businesses are the backbone of America, providing all of us with essential goods and services and employing over 60 million Americans. Small business ownership is also the most proven way to create wealth for entrepreneurs. Yet all too often businesses close up shop when the owner is ready to retire, meaning employees without jobs, customers without vendors, and wealth destroyed for the owners. Beacon is here to change that.

Beacon is a team of advisors, technologists, and marketers dedicated to advancing small business ownership in the United States. We combine experienced business advisors with technology to help retiring owners pass the torch to the next generation. Our customers are current owners looking to sell and entrepreneurs looking to dive into one of America’s most overlooked asset classes.
