E392: What Ecommerce Rollups Look for in a BrandJune 28, 2021 in Ecom-Crew-Podcast
FBA rollups and acquisition companies have been all the rage in 2021, but we don’t often hear about the buying side of an ecommerce brand acquisition.
In this episode, I sit down with Sarah Dajani of Boosted Commerce to talk about the operational side of buying ecommerce brands.
Boosted Commerce is an acquisition company that focuses on buying category leaders with a strong Amazon presence.
Some of the good stuff we talk about include Boosted’s core investment thesis and what acquisition companies really look at when considering which brands to buy. I also get to pick Sarah’s brain about how their company manages to keep the wheels in place after management and operation of an ecommerce business has been passed on.
If you’re running a solid ecommerce brand, have a strong Amazon presence, and are looking to exit your business sooner or later, definitely tune into this one.
