Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) September 12, 2016
StartupConsulting.com, a firm rigorously focused on financial, accounting, capital, marketing, operations and legal support for newly-formed businesses, is proud to announce its collaboration with multiple mergers and acquisitions advisory firms. The loose collaboration is intended to be a boon for long-term planning on companies that typically fail to begin with the end in mind when initially beginning operations.
As part of the early exit planning for startup companies, StartupConsulting.com plans to begin by working with companies on business model and acquirer planning preparation as companies begin. Long term customer contracts, a diverse customer base and a solid management team that can be easily transitioned to a knowledgeable buyer are just a few of the ways companies can prepare long before they eventually sell.
“One of the best ways we work to prepare companies for eventual exit is to work with the owner entrepreneurs on building a solid business that could operate even with the most passive owner,” says Carl Christensen, company Principal. “A big part of what we are looking to do with our business owners and mergers and acquisitions partners is to simply get business owners to ‘think’ about what selling the business would mean and require,” he says. “Simply having it as part of the plan can cause owners to build the business in a way that an acquirer would want. Doing so can better prepare the company for an eventual sale for a premium above market value.”
Part of the consulting services provided by StartupConsulting.com is to determine what valuation the business owner wishes to obtain at the time of the company sale. When looking to what an owner may require or desire as a valuation in an eventual sale, it is helpful to look toward what the company should be producing in earnings in order to match the desired exit value. Understanding business valuation metrics for specific industries as well as what buyers look for when desiring to pay a premium are a a few of the many reasons to consider exit planning strategies early.
When most clients think of startup consulting, they typically fail to consider when and how they will prepare for an eventual exit. StartupConsulting.com has found that by thinking with end in mind, companies manage their businesses better and in a way that prepares them to eventually sell. “Some of our associates and partners are here to assist the business owners as they not only prepare to begin, but as they prepare to eventually exit,” Christensen says.

The company focuses on capital, marketing, finance and operations from the outset. The company has successfully assisted dozens of startups from ideation to eventual company exit.
