E411: Why FBA Businesses are Hot Right Now with Philipp Triebel of SellerX

Mike and SellerX Co-Founder Philipp talk about what makes FBA businesses so attractive to investors, what aggregators look for, and the endgame for FBA rollups.

Today, we’ll be talking to Philipp Triebel, who is the Co-Founder of SellerX, one of the big names in the rapidly growing ecommerce aggregator ecosystem, with over 30 closed deals at the time of recording. 

FBA businesses are hot right now, some might even say now is the perfect time to be selling an ecommerce business, because of all the big rollup companies getting in on the action. 

In this episode, I get to pick Philipp’s brain about why FBA businesses are very appealing to investors, what rollups look for (and what they avoid) in a potential acquisition, and what the endgame is for all these big rollup companies. 

If you’re a thriving seller and are starting to think about your exit event, hearing about all these things from a buyer’s perspective is definitely a must.
