Democratizing Business Valuation


Have you ever gone to Zillow to get an idea of what your home may be worth? How about Kelley Blue Book when buying or selling a car? Fact is, Zillow clocks in with 36 million unique users per month and Kelley Blue Book gets 10 million unique users to their websites monthly. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could do the same for your business in a secure online fashion? Well now you can with Blaze ‘n Bear Insurance Services and BizEquity.


Our business valuation service is uniquely designed for small-to-medium sized closely-held businesses. The founders of BizEquity discovered these business owners do not have access to readily available and affordable business valuation data and insights. They made it their mission to expose this knowledge to help businesses make better decisions to protect themselves, their families, and their dreams.


The BizEquity platform is online, secure, cloud-based and created by professional business valuators. It utilizes proven generally accepted business valuation practices and techniques to provide business owners with ongoing and real-time estimates of their company’s value and performance compared to others of the same type. Since its inception, BizEquity has valued more than 33 million businesses, mostly in the U.S. Its users include over 700 financial services clients including banks, investment firms and insurance companies. There are more than 3,500 advisors, like Blaze ‘n Bear Insurance, that make business valuation a core component of their practice.


Business owners deserve to know value of their business and that the process should not be:


· A one-time event

· Expensive

· Time consuming

· Highly intrusive

· Offline


Once you become a Blaze ‘n Bear Insurance Services client, you will have ongoing access to our valuation portal, allowing you to regularly update your data so you can get ongoing intel on how your business is doing. You will be able to understand the value as your business goes through its life cycle and get answers to key questions such as:


· Are you properly funded?

· Are you protected?

· Are you paying too much for healthcare and other benefits?

· Are you operating a tax-efficient business?

· Are your employees planning properly for their futures?

· Are your legacy and exit plans heading in the right direction?


Over the next 10 years, $13.2 trillion in business value will transfer to new owners and the next generation. 78 percent of business owners expect the sale of their business to fund their retirement, but 98 percent don’t know what it’s worth. Don’t you want top dollar? Knowing your business’ value will make a difference to you and those who depend upon you.
