Bart Rupert – Founder and CEO of SpartansAlliance
We find companies that are not for sale, and approach them.
Bart Rupert has a strong Mergers & Acquisitions background across Fortune 500’s and startups within a wide range of industries. Using the tools he acquired through creating companies starting at just eleven years old, Bart developed a keen sense of what it takes to be successful at anything one puts their mind to. He founded nearly 30 companies, negotiated over $500M in contracts & business deals, grew a corporate start-up from inception to $10M, grew a healthcare company from $8M to $75M, and grew an energy company from $22M to $115M+. Today, he’s helping ordinary, everyday people buy & sell companies for a living; even those that have never bought or sold a company before are working with him to structure deals that result in multi-million dollar payouts in as little as 18 months. He has created a refined process that allows people to buy companies using none of their own money and either flip them for profit, or hold them and replace their salary from the residual income. He flips the businesses through the Unpublished Acquisition Network, a proprietary group of companies not listed for sale through a broker, which results in 5X to 7X times more success.
