WE BUY BUSINESSES
HOW IT WORKS?
1. DEAL FLOW
Source deals through existing business relationships. Utilize various digital tools to obtain new deals via social media. Use conventional methods such as direct cold outreach through various forms.
2. ESTABLISH TRUST
Create direct relationships with owners and sellers. Discuss the evolution of the business, understand the motives for a dream exit, walk through all aspects of the business from financials to sales/marketing to operations, and establish an understanding of the importance of the owner's legacy.
3. FINANCIAL ANALYSIS AND DUE DILIGENCE
Our due diligence team, along with our accounts and attorneys will perform rigorous reconciliation of all financial documents to verify business performance against P&L, Tax Returns, Balance Sheets, Bank Statements, Sales Analytic Systems, etc.
4. FINALIZE THE ACQUISITION
Dream exit becomes reality. Analyze, share, review, and sign agreements on all documentation related to the finalization of the business acquisition. We officially take over operations of the business and the seller receives the full amount documented within the purchase agreement.

We began our journey in traditional investments, real estate, stocks, bonds, etc. After extensive research, we knew we needed to diversify and stabilize our portfolio. So we transitioned our energy and focus towards small business acquisitions. We are intrigued and passionate about connecting with entrepreneurs, owners, and investors. It is important for us to maintain the legacy that previous owners have worked so hard to build. Our ultimate goal is to make business owners' dream exits come true!
It's really quite simple, we acquire small businesses with the intention to grow our portfolio and expand at the highest level possible. We invest directly with our capital as well as seek investment from outside investors through a syndicate or direct equity investment structure, or a debt investment structure. After the acquisition, we maintain day-to-day operations and handle forward-thinking growth strategies. Our philosophy is to always think big, dream big, and execute bigger!
Our team along with our advisors have over 20 years of experience investing in small-medium-large-sized businesses. We have a diverse background and pride ourselves on being well versed in multiple sectors ranging from banking, mortgage, real estate, investments, residential and commercial service-based businesses, technology, insurance, healthcare, staffing, etc. At Osborne Capital Ventures we genuinely love working with entrepreneurs and believe they are some of the most fascinating people to be around.
At the core, we are not traditional Wall Street material or Ivy league Grads, nor did we get anything handed down to us. We learned to love the journey, transition our failures into opportunities, plow through the obstacles, and look forward to new chapters to begin each in every day as we grow within our portfolio of acquisitions.
