We start, buy, and invest in wonderful internet businesses.
We aren't your typical buyer. We won't try to flip your business in 3-5 years. We won't mess with your team and culture. We won't lock you into golden handcuffs or push complex deal terms. We won't ruin your life with months of unnecessary due diligence. We won't renegotiate and grind you on terms. We'll make an offer within 7 days and close in 30. We keep things dead simple.
We started Tiny to create the buyer we wish we could have sold to. Here's a post we wrote about it.
You've scaled your business with real customers and revenue. It's profitable ($500k+), but you're burnt out and don't know how to take it to the next level or want to do something new.
You've raised some money and built a good business with serious revenue and maybe some profit, but you can't achieve venture scale. Your investors need a soft landing, and you want to sell to someone who appreciate your efforts.
Ahhhh! Your hair is on fire and things are a bit of a mess, but you have serious revenue ($5MM or more) and think this thing could be profitable in the right hands. Help!
We typically look for businesses that have been in business for at least 3-5 years, have significant profits (minimum $500k, ideally $2MM+, as high as $20MM), and have a high quality team in place. We are open to owners sticking around, leaving cold turkey, or transitioning out over time. We'll work with you to transition.
We like simple internet businesses that have high margins, don't require tons of people or complex technology, and have a competitive advantage that protects them from competitors. For example: A dominant brand, a large and loyal userbase, a technology/IP advantage, etc.
If you're concerned your business doesn't fit the bill, feel free to send it to us anyway. We'll take a look and let you know within a couple days if it's a fit.
