Support for Business Owners, by Business Owners


Venture 7 Advisors LLC

Exiting your business on your own terms doesn’t happen by accident. It requires careful planning and guidance from advisors who understand the financial and personal realities of business ownership and who are committed to securing the best possible future for you, your family and your employees.

We help our clients build and harvest business value with:

Sell-side and buy-side Merger and Acquisition Representation
Exit planning and Business Valuation
Management Consulting

Services Offered

Venture 7 Advisors is a team of veteran entrepreneurs who guide companies through strategic and operational transitions. We are hands-on managers with diverse strengths and the perspective that comes from building and successfully exiting our own companies. Whether you're scaling for rapid growth, turning around a struggling business or launching a new company, we can help.

Venture 7 Advisors’ services are focused on three practice areas that our experience has shown us can be the most challenging for companies:

Merger & Acquisition Support

When it's time to plan for the sale of a business, Venture 7 will help maximize business value, find the right strategic partner and execute a transaction that works. We understand merger and acquisition processes from the perspectives of founder, investor, acquirer, advisor and employee - because we've lived them all.

Business Exit Planning

Successfully exiting a business doesn’t happen by accident. It requires a structured, multidisciplinary planning process to achieve financial and non-financial goals. The Venture 7 Exit Planning process is a proven step-by-step approach to exiting well.

Management Consulting

Venture 7 offers financial, marketing and IT strategy and implementation services. Our experience as business owners and consultants to Fortune 500 companies allows us to provide business owners with the best of both worlds - sophisticated and pragmatic business solutions.


Business owners learn by doing. My education began with my first company, a house painting business when I was in high school. I wasn’t old enough to drive so I found a partner with a driver’s license and we made 6X the minimum wage for two summers.

In college, I founded University Consultants to help small companies automate business processes with computers. This was my first experience working with business owners to solve real problems and I was hooked on consulting forever.

I started my first “real” company, The Kodiak Group, at 30. We provided business operations and eCommerce consulting services to Fortune 500 clients throughout North America. We doubled in size every year and were profitable every quarter. Five years later, we sold the company to a venture capital-backed, pre-IPO roll-up. We rode out the IPO during the Internet boom years. After the bubble burst, we bought our company back in a leveraged management buyout and then sold it again after the economy recovered.

A career in small business ownership and big business consulting has given me unique perspectives on launching, acquiring, growing, exiting and integrating businesses. I’ve advised hundreds of business owners and executives in large and small companies in a wide range of industries, from industrial products and B2B services to healthcare and consumer products.

I’ve learned how important it is for business leaders to have experienced, trusted advisors to provide ideas and validation, especially when big decisions have to be made. Venture 7 Advisors provides exactly that kind of support - practical advice to help business owners build and exit their companies with confidence. It’s the best job I’ve ever had.
