We’re Building a Different
Kind of Company

Bootstrapped

Unlike most companies of our size, we’re fully bootstrapped (no investors). This freedom allows us to always do the right thing and stay focused on our mission: helping small businesses grow and compete with the big guys.

Bootstrapped
Always Do The Right Thing

People First

We believe that businesses are built to serve people, and the profits should be used to impact those in and around the business. In our case, people who use our products (our customers), and people who build it (our team).

Purpose Driven

Talent is everywhere, but opportunities are not. Our goal is to help level the playing field with our superior tools, team, and training, so more small businesses owners can create a better tomorrow.

We’re Joining Forces with
Those Who Share our Values

We believe that the world will be a better place if more small
businesses remain independent. This is why we partner with founders
through either full acquisitions or friendly minority stake investments
that protect their team and culture while keeping their businesses
operating independently for the long term.

Here are some of our Investments
