We're entrepreneurs just like you. All of us at Venture 7 have started, grown, and successfully sold our own companies (several times).

We're more than business sale intermediaries. We're strategists and doers who understand the challenges of building and exiting a business - because we've lived it.

If you're thinking about your exit, call us at 802.489.7700.

“Thank you for your support, and for helping me to sort out my thoughts. I appreciate your sharing your selling experiences with me. I feel much clearer about the path forward.”
