If you’ve spent any time on LinkedIn, you’ve likely come across a post or two from Andrew Gazdecki, the CEO of MicroAcquire, a startup acquisition marketplace.
Founded in 2020 by Gazdecki, MicroAcquire has quickly become a leading destination for entrepreneurs to sell their startups, with Gazdecki revealing to Axios that by December 2021, MicroAcquire had facilitated more than 500 deals with a combined valuation of more than $200 million. The same article reveals that MicroAcquire raised $5 million in funding at an $80 million valuation. Not bad for such a young brand.
Backed by the likes of Dharmesh Shah of HubSpot and Immad Akhund of Mercury, who have secured Connect.com and Mercury.com, respectively, MicroAcquire has raised $11.3 million in funding and is continuing to grow.
With its growth in mind, Gazdecki took to LinkedIn to ponder a rebrand.
In a poll on his LinkedIn page, Gazdecki asked, “Given MicroAcquire has grown and matured into a marketplace that facilitates multi-million dollar startup acquisitions frequently… Should we drop the ‘micro’ from ‘MicroAcquire’? It’s cleaner.”
So far, the majority of voters have recommended that Gazdecki secures Acquire.com, rebranding from MicroAcquire to simply Acquire. As of publishing, Acquire.com is registered under Whois privacy protection and redirects to a Uniregistry parked page.
Do you think MicroAcquire should rebrand to Acquire.com?
