The best way to generate a potential buyer list for your startup

For most startup founders, selling a business is a life changing event that they have had no training for. The first step of this process is to find out potential buyers. Hiring a good investment banker is valuable for this step, but good bankers are extremely hard to find and expensive to hire.  We provide potential buyer list generation service to make this step easy: a service to quickly analyze the market for a given business, find recent acquisitions related to it, and generate a list of potential buyers.

Good Coverage

Our system has access to more resources than 99% individual bankers.

Low Cost

Compared to bankers, our price is unbeatable (69.99 USD/Report).

No Worry on Data Leaking

Analysis is done on our secured cluster, and customers can hide their identities.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • We are an early stage startup and not ready to sell. Will your report also help us?
    "Startups are bought, not sold" is widely held, but the truth is that most startups are sold but not bought. The first step of selling your business is to position your business in the current market and see which company or PE investor may be interested in acquiring it based on their short or long term strategy. As most other founders, you probably think your company is not ready to sell. In fact, when you're ready to sell, it is often too late. Talking to potential buyers earlier or at least figuring out who your potential buyers will be can help you understand how your business will be valued and what features and strengths you should focus on.
  • What is the major difference between FMeasure's buyer list generation service and typical database searches?
    Most database searches only search for Merger & Acquisition (M&A) deals that previously happened. Then users (typically bankers) need to use their own knowledge and imagination to figure out what type of business are candidates for this type of deal. After knowing this, users will have to run more database searches to find a list of companies and check if these candidates have funding and intention to close the deal. FMeasure Buyer List Generation service automates this process by using artificial intelligence to reason over information of millions of companies across the world and hundreds of thousands of previous M&A deals. Let's be more specific, to generate a single report, FMeasure system needs to run hundreds of searches internally to generate and score candidates. The final list only contains top candidates ranked by our M&A recommendation model.
  • What does a report contain?
    It contains two documents: a document on related deals and a document on potential buyers. Customers can find examples in the "sample report" section.
  • Does 69.99 USD include sales tax?
    Yes. That is your final cost.
  • What information do you need from us to generate the report?
    When you sign up the buyer list generation service, the system will ask you 15 simple questions, most of which are optional. The most important question asks you to use short words to describe your business. Try to use a few words (say, 4-5 ) to answer it. Answering the optional questions can improve the result quality, but not required. Some startup owners choose not to answer some of those questions to hide their identities, which is perfectly fine.
  • Is it possible that you will find no potential buyers?
    This is possible. Sometime we can not find any recent deal related to the given business. Under this condition, the recommendation system can still make recommendations through reasoning over company information and remotely related deals. If the system still cannot find any potential buyer for your business, we will refund your payment.
  • Can I specify some potential buyers already on my mind, and find more companies like them?
    Sometime, users have some ideas on what companies they are looking for and like to find more companies like them. To satisfy this requirements, we provide "Potential Buyers" input field. Users can put multiple companies (represented as stock tickerss or webpages) in the input field separated by ";".  For example,  Softbank's stock ticker is jp:9984, CICC's stock ticker is hk: 3908, IBM's website is www.ibm.com and Apple's stock ticker is nasdaq:AAPL. Users can put 9984; 3908; www.ibm.com; AAPL in the "Potential Buyers" field.
  • Do you provide service to contact potential buyers on behalf of us?
    At this moment, FMeasure does not provide such a service. There are multiple ways for startup owners to approach potential buyers. You can find some articles on this.
  • What payment type do you accept?
    We use Stripe to receive payments, and all major credit cards are accepted.
  • I still have questions not answered?
    You can send your questions to team@fmeasure.com.
