The Houston Business Environment

As the fifth-largest metro area in the United States, Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land, TX, is home to over 7.2 million people and more than 160,000 registered businesses. So, when we say everything’s bigger in Texas, we mean the economy too. Houston proper is second only to NYC as home to the most Fortune 500 headquarters (we have 21). The top business industries in Houston include life sciences, manufacturing, aerospace and aviation, digital technology, transportation, and energy (gas and oil extraction).

Whether inside the Loop in Houston proper or outside the Loop in The Woodlands or Sugar Land, you’ll find a low cost of living and no state income tax. Additionally, the City of Houston offers many business-friendly incentives, including tax abatement programs, Enterprise Zones, Opportunity Zones, and more.

Houston Brokerage Services

Viking specializes in selling businesses valued in the range of $1mm to $25mm+. Through the years, we’ve found that most businesses valued in this range are still being run by the original founder, each of whom has his or her own unique reason for wanting to sell the business.

Regardless of your reason, Viking can help. We’ve spent over two decades building a network of thousands of prospective individual buyers, and we can get your business in front of them. Many times, our existing buyer pool snaps up businesses before we ever need to advertise elsewhere. Get started on the path to selling your business by contacting our Houston business brokers for a no-cost consultation.

Confidential, No Cost Business Valuation

You already know that you need to calculate what your business is worth when it’s time to sell. But there are many other circumstances when you may need to know this figure. Perhaps you’re obtaining a loan and need to know your net worth, or maybe you’re shopping around for life insurance or doing estate planning. No matter your reason, Viking’s proprietary business valuation approach will provide you with a transparent, accurate estimation of your business’s worth based on data and science—not best guesses. And the best part? This valuation is part of a no-cost consultation that we offer clients and potential clients. Contact us today to get your business valuation started.
