April 19, 2021 GMT

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 19, 2021--

Today, Boosted Commerce, LA-based consumer eCommerce platform that acquires, launches, and grows third-party businesses on Amazon and Shopify, has announced a new program for entrepreneurs who have exited their FBAs, called the “Seller Circle.” This newly launched program was created by Boosted to honor the achievements exiting founders have accomplished while empowering them to continue to build. To date, Boosted’s total available capital has reached $137M.

Boosted’s Seller Circle provides entrepreneurs who have successfully exited with Boosted, a chance to celebrate their success and re-energize before beginning their next venture. The team deeply understands the challenges founders face every day, and is dedicated to ensuring each business owner has a fruitful future. The majority of entrepreneurs who have made it across the finish line to sell their business rarely decide to stop. They’re always ready for the next great idea.

“Running any business, let alone a Shopify or FBA business, is an exhilarating and exhausting journey,” said Keith Richman, co-founder and CEO of Boosted Commerce. “Our goal with the Seller Circle is to recognize the successful end of that journey and to be there for them if and when they want to begin a new one.”

The Seller Circle program encompasses the four pillars that Boosted has deemed most important to Sellers post-exit. This one-of-a-kind approach seeks to Celebrate, Equip, Educate, and help Balance sellers as they approach the next leg in their journey. Boosted Commerce is offering a mix of high end gifts, premier access to technologies, and holistic tools for a balanced, healthier lifestyle. As part of this, owners will have VIP access to quarterly events led by advisors, as well as curated experiences focused on financial and personal success, including meetings with Tucker Cain, President of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Elie Seidman, former CEO of Tinder, Tom Staggs, former COO of The Walt Disney Company, and executives from Spotify, Goldman Sachs, as well as multiple venture capital firms and family offices.

“When I knew I wanted to sell my company, three big players called us, but we felt Boosted’s strategy was completely different from other aggregators in the space,” shared Albert Dipadova, the founder of TubCubby. “The Boosted team deeply understands the hardships of building, and ultimately selling a company. They are reliable, hardworking and transparent, and I’m lucky to work with them.”

Boosted’s co-founders have previously built retail brands from zero to north of 5,000 employees, 350 stores globally and $500 million in revenue. The team is focused on investing in brands as people, not as transactions. With a seasoned track record of international business experience, Boosted professionals consistently deliver sophisticated, white-glove service to their sellers. Their mission is to create life-changing opportunities for thriving entrepreneurs and small business owners alike.
