#BEBOLDTHINKBIG

When business owners are looking to do something big or different, they need a unique partner to help them execute their ideas. We help business owners sell, buy, raise and enhance.

SELL

THE DIGNITAS DIFFERENCE

This is personal. Selling a business is like no other transaction - for many of our clients, it's personal. We partner with founder and family run businesses to find the right buyer for their business.

Relationships matter. We leverage our deep networks to identify the appropriate fit - from deal economics to cultural fit.

Process matters. Our buyer engagement process is focused on leading potential buyers through a series of experiences that are designed to inform and increase commitment as they progress from one step to the next. 

The results are compelling - the right buyer with a full market offer.

BUY

THE DIGNITAS DIFFERENCE

You are an investor. Acquiring a business has the potential to increase the value of your business by accelerating your growth and entry into new markets. We partner with founder and family-run businesses to execute value add acquisition programs. 

People focused. People make acquisitions work, not numbers. So, experience matters - for the buyer, the seller and all of the employees involved. We are extremely deliberate about the content, tone and sequencing of communication to all stakeholders in a transaction. 

Acquisitions can be emotional and a well orchestrated experience can yield meaningful financial impact.

RAISE

THE DIGNITAS DIFFERENCE

This doesn't need to be hard. Capital raises are high stakes - raise capital and your vision is funded, fall short and bear the risk of running out of cash. We partner with founder run companies to raise capital by creating compelling investor experiences.

Think like an investor. The private capital markets have never been more competitive. Investors have tremendous choice when it comes to investment opportunities. We partner with founders to develop offerings that are compelling and a strategic fit for investor portfolios. 

We leverage our investor mindset to create a competitive capital raise advantage for our client's offering.
