Anonymous Startup Acquisition Platforms

The 'MicroAcquire' Marketplace is Free and Private to Use

— February 1, 2020 — Business
The 'MicroAcquire' marketplace is a modern online platform for the sale and purchase of startups to help streamline the process for both parties. The platform works by allowing investors to find startups that they would be interested in acquiring in order to eliminate the need for entrepreneurs to spend extended periods trying to get their business in front of the right people. This helps to start the conversation between buyers and sellers, and eliminates the middlemen from the equation when it comes to startup acquisition.

The MicroAcquire' marketplace is a free, private platform that's also powered by real-time metrics to let investors know the hard facts about a business before they make an acquisition. Parties can communicate openly with one another to get all of the necessary information out of the way and maximize transparency.
