"Let's Get You Going"

We Buy Extraordinary Businesses

Partnering with owners to give them FAST, Simple, Straight forward exits that preserve the legacy they have built in the team/culture while keeping their businesses operating long into the future.

Selling your company can be ROUGH!

At Flat Tire Finance, we understand the struggles and frustrations of trying to sell a business. The process can be long and tedious, with months of negotiations leading to legal fees and no deal. Even if you're lucky enough to close a deal, the new owners may not have the same passion and drive as you, ultimately leading to the downfall of the business you've worked so hard to build.


That's why we started FTF - to provide a solution for business owners who want to sell their business with fairness, speed, and a focus on the needs of the founder.


Our team works to ensure that the sale process is as seamless and stress-free as possible, while also ensuring that the legacy of your business is preserved and continues to thrive under new ownership. We are dedicated to providing fair, fast, and founder-friendly deals that benefit all parties involved.


Join us at Flat Tire Finance and let us guide you through the process of selling your business with confidence and peace of mind.

We focus owner operated and family-owned businesses.

Don't mess with the culture that makes each company unique.

Leave people alone


We buy great companies, hire great leaders, and leave them to do their thing.

Make founders proud


Founders entrust us with their companies. We do our best to follow through on their vision.
