Become a Passive Owner of a 7-Figure Business With Kingmakers

Starting a business is hard. Why not buy an existing business that already has cashflow and then implement systems that make the business work for you?

We’ve spearheaded the acquisition of 15 companies and deployed over $10mm since 2015. Our super power is training you to find, diligence and acquire a great business, then operate and grow it passively.

A slot to buy a business

Graduating this program earns you a slot to partner with us on an acquisition.

Here are the details...

If you want to level yourself up and become a passive owner of a 7-figure business, then consider joining our partnership gauntlet.

The partnership gauntlet is a 30 day online program that concludes with a full day meet up. It is structured as guided training in small groups of 1-6 potential partners, with daily learning and exercises, and a weekly call with one of the members of Kingmakers’ leadership team.

The content is 1/3 personal development, and 2/3 business buying. We partner just like we hire, and are looking for wicked smart, curious, voracious learners with an ambition to realize their potential so they can give back and serve others.  We value this above specific experiences.

Beyond the gauntlet

We only partner with people that successfully graduate this gauntlet – as becoming partners in a business is a multi-year commitment and we want to make sure all parties are comfortable and aligned. 

Graduating and becoming a Kingmakers partner means you will work with us to source, analyze and purchase a 7-figure business. You will also receive another 60 days of training.

After the acquisition, you will then take the business through our 12 month acceleration program.  Successfully completing this business acceleration program means you will be the majority owner of a 7-figure business that works for you, instead of you working for it. 

Seriousness fee

There is a $2,500 seriousness fee to take part in the gauntlet. If either party doesn’t feel it’s a good fit at any time, you will get the entire $2500 refunded. 

Topics Include

All 30 days of training cover a range of topics from personal development to business skills. 

The training is specifically designed to prepare you to buy a business with our team, and make sure we are a good fit for each other.

Working with Kingmakers on a business acquisition was like having an all-purpose business Swiss army knife in your pocket: from analysis of the books, to valuation, lending, and growth strategies they were there every step of the way to help provide the confidence and plan to make it happen.

Kingmakers really impressed me with their core values that I found to be more than just words. They were able to source and vet a great business, and I'm excited for what the future holds as one of their partners.
