How Does It Work?


Sharper Steel Legacy buys businesses from Baby Boomers who are looking to sell/retire. We partner with local university graduates to take over the companies.

As equity partners in the business, we groom the new owner to manage the company. 
The business stays in business, and the local talent stays local.
