A Permanent Home for “Small” Businesses in Florida

What We Do

We buy and grow Florida-based companies with the intent of never selling. We work with business owners to transition their legacies to a permanent home. After a business joins the Pursuant family, we invest in its people and operations so we can grow together for the next generation and beyond.

Purchase

A simple, transparent process, a quick closing in 3 months or less, and a fair price.

Transition

we build trust with the team, customers and vendors while the business retains independence with the support of Pursuant.

Grow

As the new, permanent owner, we invest in the business, people and operations (i.e. sales, accounting, tech, HR, etc.)

No Man’s Land

Recently I have been working on the purchase of a SMB – the business has $1.5M of annual profit, two offices and 35 employees. The process reminds me why SMBs of this size and scope – what I’ll call the micro middle market – are “no man’s land” for M&A.
