4 has come a long way
since we first launched it in 2010. The "matchmak-
ing" website, designed to help firm owners whose
paths might someday lead to a firm sale or acquisi-
tion, allows firm owners to test the waters of suc-
cession planning options in a low-pressure environ-
ment. Subscribers can connect with each other
anonymously to explore merger or acquisition po-
tential. The site now boasts an affiliation with 10
state CPA societies across the country who have
partnered with us to offer their members this one-
of-a-kind member benefit.
Whether you're looking to sell, merge, or buy a practice immediately or are just
curious, even though your retirement is years away, as a subscriber you can
connect to explore merger or acquisition potential today or years down the
road. You can contact other subscribers through the site while keeping your
name and your firm's name completely anonymous. When and if the right time
comes, you can swap contact information and take the conversation to the
next level.
How Does It Work?
There are three simple steps to use the site:
1. Search for others looking to sell, merge, or buy.
2. Subscribe to view full user profiles.
3. Send anonymous, confidential messages to users to determine if
you've found a match.
Try It Free!
We want our members to feel comfortable testing out this succession-planning
tool, so for a limited time, members can use the site at no cost. Use the promo
