Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy. 

They provide employment, innovation, and a sense of community. Those small businesses in the home services sector – Acquira prefers to work with – are also especially resilient and recession-resistant. 

However, these cornerstones of the American economy are facing a new challenge. The “silver tsunami” is coming – where many business owners are approaching retirement age and have no succession plan.

Acquira Capital recognizes the importance of small businesses and is committed to preserving their legacy. Small businesses are essential to the American economy, and their success is critical to the well-being of local communities. The one thing that even a great small business can't survive is the lack of a succession plan. That's where Acquira and its investors come in.

A Demand-Based Problem

The “silver tsunami” is the largest generational transfer of wealth in history and poses a threat to many American jobs. 

The Baby Boomer generation accounts for an estimated 2.3 million small businesses in the United States, cumulatively employing over 25 million people. Many of these businesses are thriving, and nearly 60 percent have no succession or transition plan. 

Acquira is helping to ensure that small businesses continue to thrive and contribute to the economy by providing entrepreneurs with the tools, knowledge, and training they need to succeed.

But the so-called “silver tsunami” is not just a succession planning problem; it’s also a demand-based problem. As Baby Boomers retire and sell their businesses, the supply of small businesses for sale will increase. However, the demand for these businesses may not be sufficient to absorb the supply. This could lead to a decline in the value of small businesses, making it more difficult for retiring Baby Boomers to realize the full value of their life's work. It could also lead to a decline in the number of small businesses and the associated jobs they create.

Acquira's Acquisition Accelerator program addresses the succession planning and demand-based problems posed by the “silver tsunami.” Acquira is creating a pipeline of qualified buyers who are prepared to own and grow small businesses by identifying and training high-quality acquisition entrepreneurs. These entrepreneurs bring fresh perspectives, modern management practices, and innovation to the businesses they acquire, which can help to increase their value. 

By revitalizing small businesses and promoting a stakeholder model for growth, Acquira is helping to ensure that these businesses continue to thrive and contribute to the economy, even as the demographic landscape of small business ownership changes. 

This approach benefits not only retiring Baby Boomers but also the entrepreneurs who acquire and operate these businesses, the employees who work for them, and the communities in which they are located.

Accelerating Growth While Reducing Risk

Acquira's Accelerator Program is designed to identify and train high-quality acquisition entrepreneurs prepared to own and grow the next generation of small business opportunities in the home services and manufacturing sectors. 

The program provides entrepreneurs with the tools, knowledge, and training they need to succeed, which reduces the risk of buying and operating a small business and leads to higher returns for investors in Acquira Capital. By revitalizing small businesses and promoting a stakeholder model for growth, Acquira is helping to create sustainable employment and economic development in communities across the country.

Acquira Capital provides a low-risk, high-yield private investment opportunity for accredited investors to invest in a portfolio of small businesses, all originated within Acquira’s Accelerator Program. 

The program reduces the risk of buying and operating a small business by providing entrepreneurs with the tools, knowledge, and training they need to succeed. The program seeks to create an optimized fit between an acquisition entrepreneur and a target business while mitigating operating risks through post-closing services and consulting.

This leads to higher returns for our entrepreneurs and investors, who benefit from the increased profitability and growth of the businesses and stronger communities through increased employment, investment, and engagement. 

Importantly, Acquira's approach is not just about acquiring and revitalizing small businesses but also about preserving the legacy of those businesses and ensuring that they continue to contribute to the economy.

Post-closing, Acquira’s entrepreneurs also have access to post-closing services like our ACE Framework, which helps to create management-led companies that can mitigate the risks of long-term operations and build the foundation for meaningful long-term growth. 

The Acquira ecosystem allows investors to deploy capital in well-run small businesses confidently and reduces the uncertainty accompanying similar alternatives.
