Vishal stands apart from the typical business broker or M&A advisor. With over 20 years of experience, he has established himself as a serial entrepreneur, a visionary, and a trusted advisor for business owners and entrepreneurs seeking to sell their businesses.

His unique ability lies in bringing the sophistication of 'Wall Street' M&A and investment banking to the needs of small and medium-sized companies, typically generating annual revenue between $1 million and $20 million.

Vishal's entrepreneurial journey began in childhood, sparked by his natural curiosity and early passion for innovation. This inclination led him to pursue various entrepreneurial ventures during high school and college that shared a focus on customer engagement and market understanding.

These diverse ventures laid the foundation for his business acumen and taught him invaluable lessons in successful business management, including handling challenging team dynamics, mastering effective negotiations, adept problem-solving, and overcoming difficult situations.

This early experience in entrepreneurship played a key role in honing his leadership and strategic planning skills, which will be crucial for his future business pursuits.

Vishal later founded two successful startups in the retail forex trading brokerage and software space, growing them into multi-million-dollar businesses recognized as industry pioneers, which he ultimately sold to a third-party acquirer.

During this process, he discovered his passion for helping fellow business owners and entrepreneurs achieve similar success through quality business brokerage and advisory services.
