Why Lower Mid Market Businesses?
As a lower mid market family business owner, you defy the odds to start and grow the size of your business. At some point, you want to bring in new strategic or financial partners to help you scale your businesses to new heights, but are unable to do so due to lack of access to potential buyers and/or as advisory services to link you with these potential partners. Mainstream advisory firms and financial buyers “pass up” your type and size of business as you are deemed either too small or to require too much effort for a little return. As a consequence, you end up using substitutes or doing it yourself un-successfully.
