The team at Acquira has acquired 20+ businesses and deployed over $50mm since 2015. Here’s what our acquisition entrepreneurs are saying:

“Working with Acquira on a business acquisition was like having an all-purpose business Swiss army knife in your pocket: from analysis of the books, to valuation, lending, and growth strategies they were there every step of the way to help provide the confidence and plan to make it happen.”


“Acquira is very unique in what they offer. Rather than charging you thousands of dollars for a seminar and then wishing you good luck, they offer a substantial amount of training and then they co-invest with you in the business, continuing to work with you post-acquisition.”


“Acquira really impressed me with their core values that I found to be more than just words. They were able to source and vet a great business, and I'm excited for what the future holds as one of their partners.”

Why buying an existing business is the path to financial freedom

Immediate Cash Flow: With a properly structured acquisition, the business revenue will enable you to cover the cost of the loan, draw a salary and have enough money to invest in growing the business further. This scenario is a stark contrast to starting a business from scratch with no immediate revenue.
High Chance of Survival: Only 30% of small businesses will survive their 10th year in business. Buying a 10+ year old business assures you that you have a strong foundation to continue building on. We can help you find these mature and stable businesses.
Financing: Financing the purchase of an existing business can be easier than raising money for a startup. The bank can see historical performance and not just rely on pro forma financials or projections.
Trained employees: One of the hardest parts about running a business is building a team. The work of finding, hiring and training new employees has already been done, and you can use this as a springboard for future growth.
Brand recognition: There is a significant advantage when the business you’re looking to purchase is already established within its trade sector and known throughout the community. Leveraging existing reviews/testimonials, marketing campaigns, and third-party relationships gives you a strong foundation to build on.
Training and transition: Sellers can be invaluable in helping you transition into the business, offering guidance ranging from specific training, introduction to key clients and suppliers, supplying an employment contract for future services, and in many cases, seller financing for the business purchase.
