Table of Contents




You can build an empire in the boring world of buying up great overlooked internet companies.

Here are some ideas to get started...

Bootstrapped SaaS

Take a great business to the next level. There are so many SaaS companies now that you can narrow down & become the acquirer of choice in a specific niche.

  • Developer tools
  • Future of work
  • Government
  • Healthcare
  • Logistics
  • Finance
  • Legal
  • APIs

Venture Soft Landings

3rd quartile VC-backed businesses don't have the growth to raise their next round, but they often have a great product with loyal customers.

Without the mandate to grow 10x & with a more reasonable cost structure, these can be great businesses that cash flow.

Barnacle on a Whale

Pick a fast-growing platform & focus on apps that support it.

  • Chrome extensions
  • iPhone apps
  • Webflow
  • Shopify
  • Figma
  • Stripe


Roll up great content and share best practices and audiences to take them to the next level.

  • Online communities
  • Online courses
  • Content sites
  • Newsletters

E-commerce Stores
