WHAT WE DO

The first-of-its-kind eCommerce Accelerator empowering Founders to reach peak potential

South Col provides capital, guidance, and resources on your climb to the summit.

South Col leverages our experience, wisdom, and process management in support of a growing eCommerce brand. Working hand-in-hand with Founders by taking a minority ownership stake, we strategically infuse solutions allowing for the velocity of growth to attain the maximum financial upside in a sale of your brand.

Why us?

South Col creates a true  win/win

Unlike traditional solutions, South Col only realizes a return on investment when the Founder receives valuation growth in a completed eCommerce business sale.

As South Col’s goals - and risks - are utterly aligned with those of the Founder, all of our advice, support, and working capital focuses solely on creating the growth needed to facilitate a high value exit.

Since South Col orchestrates the sales process end-to-end, the founder avoids all broker fees, sales commissions, and any potential hidden fees - saving 6% - 12% of sale proceeds.

THE CLIMB TO SUCCESS

South Col helps companies evolve from the dreaded “No Man’s Land” into the coveted “Sweet Spot”

In “No Man’s Land,” neither selling nor growing is an attractive option for the Founder.  eCommerce companies with $2,000,000 to $7,000,000 in sales often find few serious buyers, resulting in the brand valued at too low a multiple for a sale to be truly life changing.

On the other hand, growing a company of that size requires large capital infusions, tremendous amounts of time to manage, and high levels of ongoing risk.  Enter South Col – we are here to shoulder the pack up this last mountain face to the summit.
