Why sell your business or start-up?

You can make the decision to sell your start-up or business for several reasons. Of course, this depends entirely on your personal and business goals, market conditions and the current situation of your company.

What is the right time to sell your business?

If you are going to sell your business, you obviously want to get the maximum financial return out of it. How do you plan the sale of your business and find a suitable buyer? For most start-up and innovative companies, the business sale is another step toward a new challenge. Good times to sell a business include:

  • The company is growing rapidly
  • Your company performs remarkably better than the rest of the marketplace
  • You have a very attractive customer base
  • You have capital available with your company

The growth potential of a company or start-up is critical to its sale. If the future is expected to look good, that is obviously very attractive to investors. Rising sales and stable profit margins indicate a healthy business. So interesting for buyers and investors.
