Kumo's mission is to simplify and streamline the process of buying and selling a business - and we're starting with search.
Currently, Kumo aggregates thousands of deals into one easy-to-use platform, so you can optimize your deal sourcing workflows. We hope this significantly saves you time and exposes you to deal flow you otherwise would have missed.
But we're not done - stay tuned to see what's next, or send us a note to let us know how we can help you.
Kumo is used by a large range of industry professionals, including: Company Owners, Business Brokers, Family Offices, Private Equity, Traditional Search Funds, Self-funded Searchers, Strategic Buyers, M&A Advisors, Sell-side Investment Banks, and more.
Kumo monitors hundreds of publicly available marketplaces, brokerage sites, and more to find all the businesses listed for sale online. We identify & merge duplicates into unique business opportunities, clean up unstructured data, and track changes to listings across the web. Kumo has monitored more than 400,000 business listings online.
Kumo has the most extensive coverage in the United States and Canada, but is constantly expanding its global reach.
Kumo is industry agnostic, and currently covers the following industries: automotive, business services, construction, consumer goods, distribution, education, energy & utilities, financial services, food & beverage, health/fitness, healthcare, industrials, life sciences, logistics, manufacturing, materials, media, real estate, retail, SaaS apps & platforms, technology, telecom, transportation, and more.
Kumo focuses on majority and 100% buyout opportunities. While Kumo currently does not have plans to source other types of engagements, we're always open to hearing feedback - let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Sort of. Kumo offers a deal platform similar to those websites. However, unlike Axial, Kumo does not charge fees on any deals sourced through the Platform; unlike PrivSource, Kumo does not have general requirements for revenue or EBITDA, and has a wider range of deal sizes; unlike Interexo, Kumo does not operate on a credits system, and all users have full access to all deals on the Platform.
That depends. Kumo offers value to buyers and intermediaries looking to acquire/exit in a virtual market, through a less traditional M&A process. Our buyside members consist of private equity firms, single family offices, independent sponsors, traditional search funds, and strategic M&A groups. Our sellside members consist of investment bankers, M&A advisors, and high quality brokers.
Kumo is free to use with limited access (see details here). Try it for yourself to see if it's a good fit for you and your firm! If you'd like to discuss enterprise pricing for larger teams, contact our sales team at email@example.com.
Our team is committed to building software for acquisitions. Based on our experience buying and selling businesses, we know that there is a need out there for better technology to serve acquirers.
We are also the team behind LenderScout, a technology platform that matches borrowers looking for acquisition loans with lending partners. Borrowers can use LenderScout’s software to initiate loan requests with multiple lenders at the same time to find the right financing for their business acquisition. Lenders get access to qualified borrowers with streamlined document handling.
