Services Provided

MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS - working with a highly trained and knowledgeable advisor during the acquisition process greatly enhances the probability of a successful conclusion. You will receive experienced, knowledgeable, and dedicated assistance in all phases of the transaction, from the initial analysis, planning, evaluation, and qualifying of prospective purchases, through negotiation, closing and comprehensive follow-through.

BUSINESS VALUATIONS - venture advocates' summary business valuation reports are a must if you are contemplating selling a business, buying a business, bringing on or buying out a partner, or are just planning for the future. Do you need something more robust that can hold up to the scrutiny of sba financing, the irs, or litigation? If you require a certified valuation for irs, sba financing, estate tax, divorce, or partnership dispute, we will refer you to our partner firm, nationwide valuations, one of the largest providers of certified business valuations and machinery & equipment appraisals.

FRANCHISE CONSULTING - with over 2,800 franchise concepts available in the united states alone, searching for the right franchise can be a daunting task. In addition, not all franchises are created equally, and even the top rated franchises are not always the best fit for all individuals. Our process takes a close look at your goals, experience, strengths, weaknesses, desired lifestyle and more to help you find the opportunities that present a realistic opportunity for long term success and happiness.

INVESTOR NETWORK - venture advocates is building an angel syndicate.... A network of investors that reviews acquisition data and determines whether to commit the capital required to finance current acquisition opportunities, either through equity (stock), debt (loans), or gifts (donations). Once acquired, venture advocates will manage the portfolio company on behalf of its passive investors.
