On today’s episode, Kunle is joined by Ayo Disu, Kunle’s Co-Founder at Octillion Capital Partners, an acquisition company looking for diamond in the rough eCommerce, direct-to-consumer, and marketplace businesses.

After building a successful business, founders sometimes find themselves wanting to sell. This could be because they want to do something more meaningful for them, or because they are retiring and the next generation doesn’t want to take over, or simply because they have reached a plateau. 

Companies are looking to acquire businesses like these that are already profitable and have the right industry tailwind. The goal of OCP is to take companies that are doing well now to the next level using a customer-centric, omni-channel and socially conscious approach while preserving and building upon the legacy of the prior owners. We want to do well and do good.   

In this episode, Kunle and Ayo talk about what Octillion Capital Partners’ mission and plans are. You will get to hear about the things buyers look for in companies they want to acquire and how you can prepare your business for a possible acquisition.
