Testimonial Background Texture


Small business is in our founding DNA

Our co-founder Dylan’s grandfather built a successful practice as a general surgeon. Over 40 years, dedicated to his patients’ care above all else, he grew a loyal patient list and fantastic staff. 

Despite this, he didn’t have access to tools to help him value his business or find the right buyer. Instead of passing the baton, he simply shut his business down. This is just one of the personal small business connections that motivated us to start Baton.

Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and our communities

But a lot of talented entrepreneurs never actually get around to running one. The fact is, whether you're selling your business or buying one for the first time, it’s hard to know where to start.
