What is a business broker?

Asset Sales

While starting a business is harder and arguably more expensive, buying a business is also a very complicated process. You need the right advisor to help you understand value and to help identify unique strengths, opportunities, threats and weaknesses of a business opportunity.

Selling a business is much less about finding a buyer and much more about guiding the buyer and seller through a process that results in a successful transaction. You need the right advisor to help you understand value and to help buyers identify unique strengths, opportunities, threats and weaknesses of a business opportunity. However, you also need help qualifying buyers and weeding out tire-kickers. Contract negotiation is also important, but many neglect to include the foresight of what things may happen or need to happen after the sale.

What is your business worth? Will it survive buyer scrutiny? Will the buyer's loan application survive SBA scrutiny? Many buyers and sellers neglect to consider these questions.

Is your business going through Ch 11 or even Ch 7 Bankruptcy? Selling these assets is going to take a long time, and this niche set of buyers are very sophisticated and hard to find. You need a creative and resourceful broker to help you package your deal so you don't have to send it off to the auction block for pennies on the dollar. You need the advice of a SFR-Certified Realtor.

Stock Sales & Exempt Securitie

Raise Equity is exciting! However, it's extremely important to not tell everyone about your opportunity. We are not a registered broker-dealer or Capital Acquisition Broker, so we cannot help with this. However, we can help you get set up for you to do it yourself or to partner with your broker-dealer of choice to help save on costs. 

However, in regards to M&A Brokering, we can help you sell your business as long as we adhere to specific rules. For more on this, look up SEC No Action Letter January 31, 2014 M&A Broker.

We help business owners, who may or may not already have an established company, figure out how to franchise the concept. A franchise system is no small feat, and there is a lot of work that goes into creating the model.
