Technology Business

We provide highly personalised guidance during all stages of the sale process

Sell a Technology Business

We understand what it is like to sell a tech business, particularly one that you have dedicated years of your life turning into a success, and now is the time for it to give back and we are here to help.


For a business owner-manager, selling your business is always going to be a huge decision, and quite possibly the biggest financial transaction you will ever make.


As a first stage we always offer a confidential, no obligation chat with one of our Directors, Peter or Robert. Here we discuss your objectives in detail and gain an insight into your business, your technology, your personal drivers and your team. These meetings also give you an opportunity to get to know us and see how you can benefit from our personalised approach.


The Prism team has many years of combined experience throughout the technology sector, including software (creation and SaaS), IT support, IT services, cloud services, data storage, data hosting, network services, telecoms, instrumentation and much more. We use this experience to ensure we secure the best outcome for our clients and our fees are structured so that our goals align with yours.
