Consulting Businesses for Sale

Advisers know BizQuest has the best listings of consulting businesses for sale!

Almost every type of business has a slow period at one point or another. At times like these, business owners often hire consultants to assess the damage and make recommendations. Business consultants are highly trained individuals. Most hold a bachelor’s degree, and more than half have a master’s – often in Business Administration or Management. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the consulting industry is expected to grow by 82% over the next few years. This suggests the timing couldn't be better to buy or start a consulting business.

There are many types of consulting firms for sale, but the most popular include accounting firms, investment firms, management firms, and technology firms. Each type experiences consistent growth; however, IT and management consulting are among the top earners. If you find an IT consulting business for sale, you'll be joining a $354 billion industry that experiences a 3.6% annual growth rate. It involves computer systems design and development, as well as IT support and network management. Management consulting in the U.S. is a $165 billion industry with a 4.4% growth rate. It includes corporate and IT strategy, organization and financial advising, as well as marketing and sales assistance. Bain & Company and McKinsey & Company are top-level management consulting firms, but any small consulting business that's for sale will help you hit the ground running.

“THE REAL PROBLEM WITH SMALL BUSINESSES AND PRIVATE COMPANIES IS GETTING MONEY INTO AND OUT OF THEM… HERE’S HOW RAINCATCHER SOLVES THAT PROBLEM, ONCE AND FOR ALL…” DID YOU KNOW THAT SMALL BUSINESSES ARE SOME OF THE BEST CREATORS OF CASH FLOW OUT THERE? It’s true. In fact, they are some of the most cash flow efficient investments in the country. However, getting money into and out of them has been a real challenge because there has not been an efficient marketplace for being able to buy and sell them. Private companies have been a totally underserved class of asset. On the one end of the spectrum you have investment banks, who typically help sell companies generally doing $10 MILLION (or more) in earnings. But on the other end of the spectrum, you have really been reduced to working with a local brokerage (with a very limited local, city-wide, scope of prospects) and let’s face it, little more than a glorified Craigslist ad. And this is an issue because many prospective buyers are looking for a business that contains an online component that allows them freedom of not being tied to one place. And if the local broker can only help them with opportunities in the area, it dramatically limits the options of both the potential buyer and seller. And that’s a real problem because the only way to get money in and out of these private companies and small businesses is to either BUY, or SELL them. But as you can see, historically the MARKETPLACE for buying and selling cash-flow businesses has been extremely inefficient, and these opportunities have been extremely difficult to come by. Until now…THINK OF US AS AN ONLINE BUSINESS MATCHMAKER: WE ARE NOT LIMITED BY LOCATION, IN FACT, WE HAVE A GLOBAL REACH. Indeed, here at RAINCATCHER, we’ve created the most efficient marketplace for small to medium sized cash-flow businesses to be bought and sold. And what do we mean by “Raincatcher?” Well, everybody always talks about “rain makers”, but have you ever actually seen someone make it rain? We haven’t. Look… Making it rain is hard. Catching the rain is easy. It seems much easier, (and far more efficient) to simply run around with a large bucket and catch as much rain as you can, doesn’t it? “Catching the rain” is really about capturing the value you’ve created throughout your entrepreneurial career.
