Become a SaaS Business CEO, Bulletproof your Entrepreneurship Journey and Acquire Your Own 7 or 8 Figure SaaS Company
Want to buy and grow your own tech company but unsure where to begin?
Hi, I'm Akeel. Founder of HoriZen Capital. Entrepreneur and specialized investor in SaaS businesses. This is the blueprint and training I wish I had 10 years ago, that would of saved me over $100,000+ and endless frustrations when I first started on my own acquisition and entrepreneurial journey.
Become a CEO: Manage Your Own Business with Little Down and Less Risk!
Most entrepreneurs I speak to get stuck on finding the right business idea to get started and get frustrated that they can't express their inner creativity until they are sure they have the perfect business idea to start. On top of that they can't get investors or banks to lend them money since they don't have a proven track record or enough "traction" in their business.
What they also realize is that starting a business from scratch has WAY more risk then continuing to work in a high paying corporate job. With stats showing that over 90% of startups fail within the first year of starting, it's no surprise that it becomes even more intimidating than ever to start your own business.
There's many ways to becoming an entrepreneur. Putting yourself in high risk situation, where you don't find out until it's too late, doesn't have to be one of them.
Through the Entrepreneurship by Acquisition route, you've skipped 3-4 years ahead in your journey and the high risk phase to running an profitable and proven business.
Overcome The Need to Have an Original Idea
Most people spin in circles with endless ideas, procrastinate, get frustrated, and eventually “take a break” (code for: give up).
Top entrepreneurs and investors do one thing differently. They find companies that have already skipped the frustration part and buy a PROVEN business with Product Market Fit.
Idea already taken care of. Market has already accepted the business and has proven there's demand for the product. All the sweat, frustration and grind of starting from scratch has already been done by someone else.
There is a Better Path To Entrepreneurship: Finding and Acquiring a Business that's Already Established and Profitable
With the exponential growth of the digital and exponential industry, the amount of businesses out there that haven't grown fast enough for their VC's, raised a Series A or where the owner has got bored of running their startup is endless. That's where the opportunity to come in and take over the operations becomes lucrative, to 3-5x the return for investors.

A Step By Step Acquisition Course That I Wish Had 10 years ago..
When I first started acquiring small online businesses, I didn't know what I didn't know. I relied on advisors and brokers to guide me through the process of buying a website. That was my first mistake - brokers are working for the sellers and don't always provide all the knowledge and information you need to understand the business. After going through many acquisitions where i've experienced several losses from not having the right strategy and system, I knew there was a way to find better deals.
If i had access to all this training, templates, real advisors who had MY interest, and proper due diligence systems, I would have saved 100's of thousands of dollars in capital...
This is why I decided to offer the same tools and training that our team uses to you..
6 Week Bootcamp: 7 Figure SaaS Elite Buyer Acceleration Program
After moving up in deal sizes and personally being involved in over 7 figure acquisitions in the last few years, I've seen the mistakes and money lost as a result of either poor business metrics, poor due diligence or wrong valuation structure. Over time, we've refined a robust step by step model that our own team uses to source and review deals every day.
With the massive amount of opportunities out there, I decide to offer this system and course to other entrepreneurs so they can source their very own SaaS company, know what to look for in a "great" business, how to conduct due diligence, how much is the business worth, how to structure the offer and where you can raise capital to acquire the business.

- 2Growth: Get the skills, systems, and guidance you need to take your tech entrepreneur phase to the next level.

Creator of Buyer Accelerator Program
About the Author
I'm Akeel. I've been sharing everything I know since 2014 when I bought my first online business and started my first personal finance blog. Since then I've consulted, founded or worked at dozens of tech companies.
As founder and partner at HoriZen Capital, I'm no stranger to buying and growing SaaS companies. In fact, it's become my entire career strategy for the last 6 years.
Shouldn't I Just Start My Own Startup From Scratch?
It depends. Are you a builder, visionary and creator? Or are you an implementer, manager and integrator of a proven business? I know myself that I much prefer to take on a business that's already been proven to work, find areas of opportunities and capitalize the growth using my own skills. I don't have a single idea or problem that comes to my mind that's so attractive enough that I'd want to dedicate the next 5 five years trying to build and grow on my own. Therefore, it really comes down to your personality and where your skillset is.
Advantages vs Disadvantages
You can choose to stay where you are or you can choose to try a new, proven path. Starting a business from scratch or buying an existing, profitable business is a personal choice.
We're biased - we prefer to skyrocket the results a few years ahead. Compare both options and decide for yourself..

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to be "rich" to buy a company?
Nope. We show you how you can access other sources of capital that don't depend on draining your savings account.
Is there a money back guarantee?
Yes, 100%. If you complete < 50% of the initial material within 7 days and aren't satisfied, we'll refund the full amount.
I've never bought a company. Is this for me?
Most of our students are first time buyers, who have some background in finance, tech or marketing. This is exactly the course if you need the right guidance, mentoring and framework to be successful in an acquisition. Afterall, you don't want to risk investing 7 figures in a business without the right strategy.
Do I need to know how to code?
Not necessarily. If you had the experience to manage a team before or have a background in identifying talent, you can leverage buying a company with an existing development team in place.
How will I know if I've been accepted into the program?
We review all applications individually and make sure it's the right fit for our program. We'll let you know within 5 business days if you've been accepted via email.
How long is the program?
The program is designed to be completed over a 6 week period. However, it takes much longer to find the right business to acquire. You'll have access to the course for an entire year as you review deals and work through the excercises.
P.S.: This course isn't a get rich scheme and I wouldn't want anyone to join this course without the commitment or mindset to putting in the time and effort to finding and running a profitable company.
In fact, if we find out during the program that you're not the right fit, we'll kindly ask you to leave :)
We want winners who are serious at buying and operating a successful company.
