We are committed to helping to build a community of like minded eCommerce business owners to share best practices so they can assist each to bring their businesses to the next level while placing their business in the best position for exit.
Society Brands created what we call our E2 Strategy. We pay considerable cash at closing with the additional consideration awarded as rollover equity into Society Brands. This allows you to enjoy a large upside with the rest of our founders when we eventually IPO or sell the company. By getting in early, the second exit you realize via Society Brands should be significantly bigger than the first! As a result, we are confident you will receive a much larger total multiple at Society Brands than you’ll get anywhere else.
