Buy Then Build- Walker Deibel
Walker Deibel is an entrepreneur and investor who has co-founded three startups, acquired seven companies outright, and has consulted or participated in over 100 business transactions. After the success of Buy Then Build he started an elite accelerator for acquisition entrepreneurs – the Acquisition Lab – to assist business buyers with world-class education and a vetted community. He is a Certified M&A Advisor and was awarded Thought Leader of the Year by the Alliance of M&A Advisors for his work on Buy Then Build, its impact on entrepreneurship, and its adoption into business schools.
Buy an existing company rather than starting from scratch
Walker Deibel spent 10 years acquiring companies outright, starting with less than 100,000 dollars and ultimately acquiring over 16 million in revenue, gaining access to millions along the way simply by leveraging an existing company’s track record.
He took the risk and spent the time so you don’t have to. With Buy Then Build, his mission is to “democratize the private capital markets for entrepreneurs,” so they can learn to accelerate impact, growth, and value with this unconventional approach.
Use ownership as a path to financial independence and impact
The fastest way for most people to gain autonomy and earn generational wealth is via business ownership.
However, many realize these are only side benefits with the understanding that owning a business creates a vehicle for making an impact.
Spend a fraction of the time raising capital
Why give away the most valuable thing you have and reduce your control by selling equity? Why spend years convincing angels to invest instead of focusing on your business?
Business acquisitions are based on solid economics, existing infrastructure, and historical earnings. This means bank loans are readily available and close in 2-3 months. So you can focus on building value.
Even Gary Vee started with his parents’ wine shop and YouTube, not a SaaS innovation. #BuyThenBuild
