Who We Are

About Us

They Got Acquired is a media company that helps entrepreneurs sell their business.

Our mission is to redefine startup success by sharing stories of companies that sell for $100,000 to $50 million.

Silicon Valley tells us success means selling for hundreds of millions of dollars, a result of fast growth at all costs and raising lots of venture capital.

But for many entrepreneurs, there’s a more likely and more appealing option: a smaller yet life-changing exit, accomplished through thoughtful, sustainable growth while retaining ownership through bootstrapping or minimum funding.

Behind the Business

Our Team

They Got Acquired launched in early 2022. It’s a bootstrapped business, run by founder Alexis Grant and a team of about 10 talented contractors.
