How We're Different

Exit Scout is an entrepreneur-managed firm specializing in growing businesses and preparing them for acquisition. With real operating experience, we take a hands-on approach to working with our companies.

Too many buyers and investors come with a checkbook and a chainsaw (or, if you're lucky, a scalpel) ... but lack the in-the-trenches experience to ensure your company moves forward with your vision intact.


Our leadership team has experience operating businesses in advertising, marketing, business services, manufacturing, distribution, technology, healthcare and Internet.

When you work with us, we'll give you the unfiltered truth so you can make informed decisions.

Life is too short to work with people who don't share your values. Here are the ones by which we operate.

  • Plain Talk: We tell it like it is and don’t sugarcoat things. We have a thick skin and welcome feedback. 
  • Integrity: We are reliable and do what we say we will.
  • Value Creation: If we can't add value, we'll be open about it.
  • Speed: We move fast and decisively because we have planned in advance.
  • No Drama: We don't partake in, or accept, workplace drama.

If these don't resonate with you, we're probably not a fit.

A delight to work with - knowledgeable,
fast, and personable while buying my company.
