About our team
We buy bootstrapped businesses from SaaS founders worldwide and take them to the next stage of growth.
Who We Are
Meet our leadership team
Tom has a history working with SaaS companies to grow and scale, while improving efficiency through optimization and process improvement. Tom has consulted for brands like Yodle and GoDaddy, and also with numerous bootstrapped SaaS companies. He has a passion for travel, and spends a significant amount of time exploring the world with his wife and children. This exposure to the unknown provides challenges that translate well into communication and problem solving skills in the SaaS space.
Head of Growth
Marvin is the founder of MySiteAuditor, a SaaS acquired by SureSwift Capital in 2016. Prior to MySiteAuditor, Marvin was the CEO of The Ocean Agency for 12 years, a boutique digital marketing agency in Chicago, IL, where he worked with startups, small businesses, and some of the biggest brands in the world. Marvin’s agency and SaaS experience provide a perfect fit to lead the growth initiatives of our digital team.
Our remote team
90+ people in 14 timezones
We create dream exits for founders so they can move on to their next great idea.
This is what gets us out of bed in the morning. Because while there are a lot of reasons for a founder to sell their business, we find the most common is a new project they want to focus on. But, they also want to find the best home for their customers and their team before moving on.
What Kinds of Businesses Do We Buy?
Our focus is B2B SaaS
Our Founder-Friendly Acquisition Approach
Our business model is based on the long-term growth of our portfolio.
So, when we buy a company, we take care of its team and customers. Our goal is to provide both with opportunities that might have been unavailable to purely bootstrapped founders.
How? We’ve learned what works and we’ve developed a thorough and transparent transition timeline and turnover guide to take the stress out of the sales process. (In fact, our sales are so smooth, they usually take place without a broker — which means more money in the founder’s pocket).
We also have a remote team of people around the globe with expertise in product management, UX and development, and marketing ready to put their knowledge and skills to work on new products. And we invest profit from our portfolio back into our businesses, to do things like expand features, attract new customers, and ensure existing customers’ happiness.

The Founders Squad
Sometimes founders who sell us a business want to stay engaged, and we love that.
