Acquire Seller Office Hour from June 24, 2022

This is the recap of the Acquire Seller Office Hour on June 24, 2022. Acquire Office Hours are our way of making time to help individuals answer specific situational questions about the acquisition process as it relates to them.

Our goal from the beginning has always been to democratize startup acquisitions and offer Acquire as more than just a platform but a resource to educate the community at large.
