How To Buy and Sell Businesses

Providing Expert Advice

For Small to Medium Sized Business Owners

“Everyone will teach you how to start a company.
But only Exit Factor will teach you how to build and sell one.”

Why Exit Factor?

At Exit Factor, we believe that every entrepreneur should get the maximum value of their company whether they decide to sell it or not. Many courses, programs and schools will teach you how to start a business or even how to grow it, but how about how to sell it? Everyone will exit their business in some way, either feet on the ground or feet first (as they say). Why not be prepared and get the maximum value possible?

Leading Experts

Exit Factor was developed by two of the leading experts in the business brokerage industry after years of research, thousands of buyer interviews, and hundreds of millions in closed transactions. What has resulted is a simple way you can learn how to buy, build, and sell businesses and create wealth for you and your loved ones. Our courses focus on:

Buying a Business

Growing Through Acquisition

How to Sell a Business

DIY Online Programs

We deliver these programs through our DIY online programs with broker support as well as 1-2-1 personal, certified consulting.

“Our participation in the Prep to Sell program helped change the direction and focus of our business. Our consultant was knowledgeable, thorough, fun to work with, and provided us with great advice.

Prep to Sell’s analysis validated many of our business processes and confirmed we were doing a lot of things right. Their recommendations provided a clear roadmap of areas where we could improve, which would result in added value to the business. For example, they suggested defining greater segmentation on revenue categories to really understand where sales were coming from, and also offered numerous options and recommendations for pricing of products that we had not considered. These recommendations were implemented in a short time period with great success.

I would highly recommend the Prep to Sell Program to any business owner who wants to get their business ready for sale.”
