A letter from co-founders,
Max Firsau and Nick Tuzenko,
at Accel Club

When news of the war in Ukraine first broke, like many others, we were shocked and worried about our families, friends, colleagues and partners in Ukraine. It is hard to bear when people we care about are hurting. To our Ukrainian colleagues and everyone residing in Ukraine, no words can describe the anguish you have suffered as the tragedy unfolds before your eyes.

The wellbeing and safety of our colleagues and their families is our top priority. Since day one, our dedicated taskforce has maintained contact with our Ukraine-based colleagues regularly to support them according to their individual circumstances, and the rest of our global team rallied behind them to ensure they can focus on themselves.

As a global company, Accel Club is incorporated in Delaware, USA, with our headquarters situated in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Our executives and employees are based in different locations around the world including the US, the Netherlands, China, Armenia, Turkey, Georgia and Ukraine. In view of the current situation, we have decided to close all operations in Russia. As such, we will no longer engage any contractors in the country. Business-critical operations continue to run across the rest of our global team who are focused on serving our customers, and delivering the best value and products in over 20 countries.

Our hearts ache for everyone affected, and we pray for the safety of our loved ones and team in Ukraine. This conflict is not something anyone wants or supports. We pray for peace and are heartened by the care and empathy shown toward one another, and we ask that everyone do what you can within your means to help. During this difficult time, we must stand together and support one another.

From our first conversation we realized that the Accel Club team shares a similar worldview with us, both in terms of brand development and relationships with customers and employees. This was very important in our choice of a buyer. We not only wanted to sell the brand for a good price, but also to ensure it stayed in good hands.

Having spent a few months speaking with brokers, colleagues, and other buyers, the team at Accel Club were outstanding and absolutely delightful, and made our first sale a very pleasant one for us. Undoubtedly, it helps that they offered the best terms. Additionally, while buyers and acquirers are flooding the market right now, what distinguishes Accel Club is their relatively painless process, from negotiations, to due diligence, to handoff & payment. Even their level of intent & commitment is highly notable among their peers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question about working with Accel Club? Our FAQ has the answers.

Get in touch
How long does it take you to close deals?

Usually, we close deals in 30 days. We start with a short intro call, then we sign NDA and evaluate your business. If all goes well, we proceed with a letter of intent and due diligence (2-3 weeks). Finally, all legal papers are signed, and funds are disbursed.

Why should I choose Accel Club over other aggregators?

We are entrepreneurs who have built e-commerce businesses. Our team has an extensive background in operations and speaks your language. Global expansion of your brand is our priority. You receive more for your business than from other big-name aggregators. Your pay outs are linked to revenue, not to EBITDA.

Can I receive a referral fee for introducing you to another seller?

Sure, just get in touch with us.
We have already paid millions of US dollars in referral fees.

Why should I sell my business now?

When sellers approach us, they mention various reasons for selling their business now. Some are looking to make a change in their life after spending so much time on Amazon, e.g. vacation, new venture, retirement.  Other sellers exit because of limited growth potential of the current business – need to enter new markets, launch new products, or face increased competition. Some are looking to take advantage of the current high demand for acquisitions. Interest in M&A from aggregators will not last forever, and they will switch to launching new products in the future.
