About Baton
We’re building America’s small business marketplace. Baton is supercharged by data to support business owners and potential buyers through the historically opaque and illiquid $11 trillion small business acquisition market. To start, we’re unlocking data-driven business valuations for every small business, and collecting first-party financial data to power refined valuations - ultimately becoming the Zillow for small business acquisitions. Baton is backed by Giant Ventures, Bloomberg Beta, and a syndicate of world-class angel investors.
