The Value Builder Program Explained

What is the Value Builder System?

The Value Builder System™ is a scientific methodology proven to increase the value of your business. After analyzing over 65,000 businesses, the average Value Builder Score is 59 out of a possible 100. If we look at the acquisition offers these businesses have received, the average offer is 3.5 times pre-tax profit. The Value Builder users who have improved their score to 90 or greater – by following the system – are receiving offers of 7.1 times pretax profit on average.


Recycled Paper
What does your Value Builder Score tell you?

Your Value Builder Score is calculated through an analysis of your business' performance on eight factors that drive the value of your business. Along with your score, you will see a result on all eight of the value drivers and the average score for each among companies in your industry.

Value Builder PREScore

PREScore™ (or Personal Readiness to Exit Score) is an 8-minute, online questionnaire that evaluates a business owner’s readiness to exit their company on a personal level. Using an exclusive algorithm, PREScore™ calculates an owner’s readiness by identifying their status on 4 drivers of a satisfying exit. PREScore™ determines the at-risk areas and provides personalized recommendations for improvement, helping owners create a personal plan that ensures a happy and lucrative exit.

Once you complete the questionnaire, you’ll receive your PREScore™, personalized report with action plan, and e-book (The Exit Checklist).
