“The Real Problem With Small Businesses and Private Companies Is Getting Money Into And Out Of Them… Here’s How RAINCATCHER ® Solves That Problem, Once And For All…”
Did you know that small businesses are some of
the best creators of cash flow out there?
In fact, they are some of the most cash flow efficient investments in the country. However, getting money into and out of them has been a real challenge because there has not been an efficient marketplace for being able to buy and sell them.
Private companies have been a totally underserved class of asset. On the one end of the spectrum you have investment banks, who typically help sell companies generally doing $10 MILLION (or more) in earnings. But on the other end of the spectrum, you have really been reduced to working with a local brokerage (with a very limited local, city-wide, scope of prospects) and let’s face it, little more than a glorified Craigslist ad.
And this is an issue because many prospective buyers are looking for a business that contains an online component that allows them freedom of not being tied to one place. And if the local broker can only help them with opportunities in the area, it dramatically limits the options of both the potential buyer and seller.
And that’s a real problem because the only way to get money in and out of these private companies and small businesses is to either BUY, or SELL them.
But as you can see, historically the MARKETPLACE for buying and selling cash-flow businesses has been extremely inefficient, and these opportunities have been extremely difficult to come by.

We are not limited by location, in fact, we have a global reach.
Indeed, here at RAINCATCHER ®, we’ve created the most efficient marketplace for small to medium sized cash-flow businesses to be bought and sold.
And what do we mean by “Raincatcher ®?”
Well, everybody always talks about “rain makers”, but have you ever actually seen someone make it rain? We haven’t. Look… Making it rain is hard. Catching the rain is easy. It seems much easier, (and far more efficient) to simply run around with a large bucket and catch as much rain as you can, doesn’t it? “Catching the rain” is really about capturing the value you’ve created throughout your entrepreneurial career.

- By Entrepreneurs, For Entrepreneurs. The other all-important “x-factor” that gives us an edge over anyone else is the incredible depth of experience that our founder, Robert Hirsch, has accumulated in his 25 years of business experience:
Meet Robert Hirsch, Founder of
Robert Hirsch is a highly successful serial entrepreneur who has bought, created, sold (or consulted with) over 70 small to medium sized businesses over the past 25 years.
The managing partner of South Fork Ventures, a private equity fund, and the CEO of “The Elevation Group,” (or EVG for short). EVG specializes in entrepreneurial and financial education, and helps people worldwide achieve financial freedom using investment strategies of the wealthy.
As a consultant, board member, owner (or investor), Robert has been involved with – and a part of – over 70 different businesses over the course of his career so far. Many of his private clients are household names, and he has been involved with virtually any kind of business you can imagine. From venture capital backed startups, to high growth lifestyle businesses, and everything in between.
Combined, the businesses Robert has been involved with have created literally hundreds of millions of dollars in shareholder value.
Robert lives by the credo
“if business is done the right way, the amount of money you create is directly proportional to the amount of people that you help. So if you need to grow your business, FOCUS on how to help more people.”
Being involved with so many varied businesses has put Robert in a rather unique position to be able to see – and identify – the commonalities of what makes some businesses WORK, and others NOT. These “golden threads” have allowed Robert to distill these fundamental business success principles into proprietary frameworks and business models he has been perfecting over the years.
Today Robert is a trusted advisor, consultant and board member that dedicates his time to mentoring other entrepreneurs, and helping them SCALE, SELL and BUY highly profitable businesses by sharing his proprietary frameworks with them.
He is truly committed to helping entrepreneurs create a life they love.
This story takes place on a beautiful sunny afternoon at the home of our founder (Robert Hirsch) on Lake Austin.
He was having drinks on the patio with an investment banker about investing in small private companies, and the investment banker said something that resonated so profoundly with him, that his words stuck in his mind long after… he said, “Robert, the problem I have with small companies is that I don’t know how to get my money out of them.”
And it was at that point that Robert realized an entrepreneurial truth that had eluded him for almost 20 years that came before that… which was that he always had a “problem” getting OUT of the business.
He had built these valuable businesses and sold them before, but what he missed were the following two very important and valuable insights…
- How to build the company to maximize the value at exit, when he sold the company – and starting with that end in mind.
- Public companies grow by acquisition all the time, and entrepreneurs and small businesses can do the same thing, the PROBLEM is that an efficient marketplace to buy and sell small to mid-sized cash-flow companies has not existed, until now…
