Interested in selling us a business?

We aren't your typical buyer. We won't try to flip your business in 3-5 years. We won't mess with your team and culture. We won't lock you into golden handcuffs or push complex deal terms. We won't ruin your life with months of unnecessary due diligence. We won't renegotiate and grind you on terms.

We keep things dead simple. We'll make an offer within 7 days and close in 30. We started Tiny to create the buyer we wish we could have sold to. Here's a post we wrote about it.

The companies we buy usually fall into three buckets:

We typically look for businesses that have been in business for at least 3-5 years, have significant profits (minimum $500k, ideally $1MM+, as high as $15MM), and have a high quality team in place. We are open to owners sticking around, leaving cold turkey, or transitioning out over time. We'll work with you to transition.

We like simple internet businesses that have high margins, don't require tons of people or complex technology, and have a competitive advantage that protects them from competitors. For example: A dominant brand, a large and loyal community, a niche vertical, or something similar.

If you're concerned your business doesn't fit the bill, feel free to send it to us anyway. We'll take a look and let you know within a couple days if it's a fit.
