Viking specializes in selling businesses valued in the range of $1mm to $50mm+. 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.
