Why Robert Glazer Sold His $28 Million Agency

Built To Sell Radio Episode #325

Robert Glazer started an affiliate marketing agency called Acceleration Partners in 2007.


Glazer never took outside capital and grew Acceleration to almost $28 million in sales before he sold a majority interest to Mountain Gate Capital in 2020.

  • Distinguish between owner and manager incentives.

  • Create your phantom equity program for key managers.

  • Structure your deal with a private equity buyer.
