Profitable Marketing Agency Seeks Equity/Growth Partner

Highly profitable and on an upward trajectory, the Company is a Michigan-based lead-edge marketing agency for sale that has proven itself to be nimble and ambitious enough to thrive in a rapidly changing industry. From two offices, the Company serves over 350 (and counting) active clients who hail from Michigan and beyond. Its curated team of designers, marketers and developers produce traditional and digital media that is on par with agencies far greater in size.

Ownership is seeking an equity partner for a number of reasons: 1) The skills required to go from 0 to 15 employees are very different from the skills required to go from 15 to 100. The owners recognize that personal limitations related to the ability to grow and manage the business are in view; and 2) while ownership would enjoy working for the new owner, monetizing a large portion of what has been built is appealing.

The ideal buyer would be a strategic partner in the form of an investment group or larger marketing firm.  Ownership is not interested in working with individual buyers at this time.
