We’re not for everyone.

At Scout & Spur, we help Main Street and Middle Market business owners who stop, look around, and ask, “What’s next?”

You’ve come far, but outside expertise might serve you well. Perhaps you need funding to continue your growth or acquire another business. If you’re looking to move on or retire, you need a clear exit or succession plan.

Some big questions may be keeping you up at night. What happens when you outgrow your business, or it outgrows you? How would it survive without you? How will it survive and recover from a crisis?

Above all, you want to build a saleable business, but don’t know the best way forward.

Many entrepreneurs don’t know the answers to these and other important questions, so they call us. We help the owners of small to mid-sized businesses navigate business sales, acquisitions, mergers, and other strategic deals.

Most of our clients own private businesses with annual revenue between $500,000 and $20,000,000. We sometimes work with smaller companies that have unique strategic value or larger companies where there is a mutual fit of vision, strategy, and resources.

Our ideal clients share these traits:

  • Independent thinkers who take good advice from people they trust. We handle the details so you can focus on the big decisions.
  • A positive attitude. Negativity can prevent you from recognizing opportunities. You see the glass as half-full.
  • Honesty and trustworthiness. We don’t take ethical shortcuts. If you’re hoping we’ll help you pull the wool over someone’s eyes, don’t call us. Truth always wins.
  • No bullying. Sometimes you have to draw a hard line during negotiations; but we don’t work with anyone who crosses the line into bullying or abuse.

We can’t promise we’re the right fit, but we can promise we’ll treat your contact information and business details as confidential while we discuss your needs and goals.
