Value Builder Platform

We are on a mission to shift the balance of power in favor of small business owners as they approach their exit. Our community of advisors are among the world’s leading thinkers in the area of building company value. 

The Value Builder System™ is the leading operating system for the value growth consultant. This all-encompassing platform provides value growth consultants with a way to measure an owner’s company through the lens of an acquirer. 

The Value Builder Score is measured by an owner completing a 13-minute Value Builder questionnaire that assesses the state of their business.

The Value Builder questionnaire includes 32 questions that are categorized into one of eight major themes, or “drivers,” of a company’s value:

In addition to a report of a company’s score on the eight key drivers of value, the Value Builder System™ also provides value growth consultants with an estimate of value of their clients’ business.

The Value Builder Score makes up one half of the equation that allows the Value Builder System™ to estimate the value of a company. The other side of the equation is derived from a set of industry benchmarks the Value Builder System™ licenses from third-party data providers.

Our third-party data providers allow us to establish a range of value for a company in a specific industry, and the Value Builder Score allows us to estimate where on that range the company is most likely to fall.

The ROI Calculator, or Scenario Planning Tool, is an out-of-the-box tool in the Value Builder System™ that allows the value growth consultant to showcase to a business owner how his or her advisory services will generate value. The ROI Calculator includes unlimited scenarios and can be used throughout the business owner engagement.

The Nurture Cycle in the Value Builder System™, an automated drop marketing campaign feature, provides content distribution on behalf of the value growth consultant, allowing them to demonstrate their thought leadership and stay top of mind.

The Value Builder Engagement modules provide a statistically proven, 12-step approach for improving value over time. Equipped with tutorial videos, activities, and action plans, this level of engagement allows any advisor to add a recurring revenue stream to their practice as they will typically meet with business owners for two hours each month.

The Value Builder System™ is a systematic approach for helping your clients improve the value of their business.

After analyzing over 50,000 businesses, the average Value Builder Score is 59 out of a possible 100. If we look at the acquisition offers these businesses have received, the average offer is 3.5 times pre-tax profit.

The Value Builder users who have improved their score to 90 or greater – by working with a Value Builder advisor – are receiving offers of 7.1 times pre-tax profit on average.
