Benefits of Working with Navocate
Navocate understands that confidentiality is critical in the sale of a business. All trade names are masked when we market the business, and confidential information is only released to prospects who sign a non-confidentiality agreement.

Navocate’s principals have worked for (and with) everything from one-person shops to Fortune 50 Corporations. We have created, managed, bought, and sold our own companies. Consequently, we thoroughly understand every phase of the buying and selling process—from inside and out.
Proprietary Valuation Model
We created our own valuation model optimized for Emerging
Companies. Our forward-looking model analyzes the overall deal structure,
and resulting debt service, to balance the seller's need for maximum price
with the buyer's need for maximum return. The advantage of this approach is
to ensure that the business cash flows for a new owner, and that the deal
can be financed.
Project Management Systems
Navocate has also developed specialized project management systems designed
to manage complex M&A transactions to keep the project on track and minimize
Our business marketing programs reach prospects throughout Florida, the U.S., and the world. While our primary focus is on Internet marketing, we also employ webinars, direct mail, telemarketing, and networking across our member associations—including the International Business Brokers Association, the Association for Corporate Growth (comprised primarily of private equity firms), and the Business Brokers of Florida. For our sell-side services, however, our best marketing skills, involve creating a unique identity and compelling story about your business to complement the financials and engage the minds of motivated Buyers.
Due to the complexities involved in closing a transaction—even with the smallest of businesses—problems seem to come from nowhere (or everywhere) that have the potential to disrupt the transaction. To manage ongoing problems that occur we constantly monitor all stages of the process. We anticipate where problems can occur. And we micromanage every aspect of every deal. This includes managing all involved third-parties, such as banks, insurance companies, and others. While we can’t guarantee that every deal will close, we can assure you that our attention to detail is a key reason our closing rates are higher than average.
When emotions and finances are involved, differences unquestionably arise. Conflict requires negotiation. Because Buyers and Sellers are often entrenched in, and blinded by, their respective positions, it’s often difficult for them to reach agreement on perceived make-or-break issues. That’s why one of our most important roles is to act as an intermediary to help reach agreement. We help separate the people from the problems, and look for areas of consensus.
