Hello to all the IndieHackers out there!
I’m Kevin McArdle, and I’m the Founder and CEO of SureSwift Capital. We’ve been buying online businesses from independent Founders since we launched in 2015, and we’ve made more than 40 acquisitions since then.
In 2016 we really started hard-core focusing on SaaS products, and that’s still what we buy today. We don’t flip businesses, we hold them and grow them.
So, in addition to acquiring businesses, we have a global team of product managers, marketers, customer happiness folks, and developers who work on maintaining and growing each of our products.
We’ve got tons of success stories from the portfolio, as well as mistakes we’ve made along the way while we scaled (like trying to build our own product from scratch).
I’m happy to answer q’s about anything from what we look at when we’re buying, how to prep for exit, metrics we track and how we approach growing a product once we own it.
My VP of Acquisitions, Chris Reedy, will also be on here to help answer questions, so we’d love to answer any you have!
