We are a quality-first business brokerage focused on delivering your ideal exit.
We are a group of entrepreneurs bringing high-quality businesses to market
Traditional brokers have opaque processes, pricing, and lack business acumen. We've run successful businesses and have strong values when it comes to representing your company.
By entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs. The all-important x-factor that gives us an edge over anyone else is our experience as founders.
We work with – and nurture a relationship with – a list of several thousand SERIOUS entrepreneurs and buyers. Many of them have run businesses before or have portfolios of businesses.
We go after strategic buyers in the market to maximize value for both the seller, as well as the buying entity to extract the most value out of the acquisition.
We have the best appraisal resources available to give sellers a realistic estimate of what they can expect to sell their business for. In fact we’ve written the most shared and referenced online business valuation report on the internet.
Our team has some of the best licensed brokers in the industry, and have run their own businesses as entrepreneurs.

Business Exits did everything that needed to be done to sell my Amazon business. We got the highest possible price and the best buyer, and they actually found that buyer on day number one.
Entrepreneur, Blue Sky Amazon
The team at Business Exits rolled up their sleeves and worked hard to sell my business. Even though my deal was small, they put a lot of effort into it. They’re straight shooters. You can trust what they say.
Business Exits made selling our business easy, straight forward, and clear…which is really remarkable given the complexity of selling your business. I was most impressed at how FAST they got the deal done.
Entrepreneur, Brave New Code
After having worked with Business Exits, we were able to produce about 12 highly qualified offers. I’m happy with the sale, not only because of the price, but also because of the quality of buyer, and I know what I built is in really good hands.
