David Jacobs, Licensed California Business Broker

California business broker

As an experienced and licensed California business broker, I know your business is as important to you as my business was to me. I am a past  entrepreneur with a passion for selling B2B  businesses.

I offer a hands-on, high-touch level of service to my business clients.  My services cover the entire process of preparing your business for sale all the way through closing and transfer of funds.  I’ll be with you and your trusted advisors on every step of the journey.

Before starting my own California business brokerage practice, I held numerous sales and business development positions within the high technology industry. I have worked in both startups and also large corporations within the software industry.  During my time in the software industry, I successfully negotiated multi-million dollar global deals with large companies such as Microsoft, Oracle and Sun Microsystems.

Prior to becoming a licensed California business broker, I ran a commercial printing  brokerage operation focused on  business-to-business catalogs. My team and I grew this business to become the third  largest print brokerage in the country. Our customers from the print brokerage crossed  many industries but many were involved in manufacturing or distribution. I made the  transition to a business broker after selling my own company.

I have a MBA from New York University in finance and a BA from the University of  Pennsylvania in economics. I live on the Peninsula with my family and have been living in the SF Bay area since 1996.
