About US


We are a diverse team of professionals with a common passion….. to tirelessly serve small business.  Everyone knows that small business is our nation’s true economic engine, yet they carry the burden without the resources and advantages allotted to big business.   We aim to level the playing field by delivering to small business the knowledge, expertise and exceptional service previously available only for the Fortune 500.   So that is why ASPIRA exists – to bring big business results to small business

01. Advocacy

We hold ourselves to the highest standard of service for our clients and always go the extra mile on their behalf.  We take the time to “do it right” by thoroughly learning our client’s business and market conditions.

02. Partnership

We are a team of talented, independent professionals working with the highest levels of integrity as your partner and advocate for the purchase or sale of a business. We are a “kindred spirit” to small business.

03. Innovation

We are a creative, “learning” organization that seeks out new tools, technology and education to better serve our clients and form best practices in the industry.

Message from the Founder

Message from the Founder

I have had the privilege of building a national, multi-million dollar company from a kitchen table, serving entrepreneurs, business owners and real estate owners as a New Jersey and Pennsylvania Attorney, and working closely with “Main Street” business owners and leaders.   It seems during election campaigns that small businesses get plenty of lip service as the backbone of the American economy deserving of help, but actions speak louder than words. Wall Street and Fortune 500 companies seem to get special favors while small business struggle for more. It is true, in many ways, Main Street serves as the backbone of the economy.  Nobody works harder than Main Street.

This is why I founded ASPIRA.   Our mission is to provide Main Street with exceptional service and business expertise normally reserved for big business, corporate clientele.  They deserve nothing less.

While the business owners I work with are extremely competent in their chosen field, everything changes once the decision is made to sell.  They enter a “high stakes” marketplace which is completely new, fraught with risk and uncertainty. This is where ASPIRA comes in. We serve as a close, trusted and empathetic partner throughout the entire process and will work tirelessly on your behalf.

I have built a diverse team of accomplished professionals with the skills and expertise to sell your business quickly, efficiently and profitably.    We follow a rigorous step by step process to ensure that no stone is left unturned in realizing the full fair value of your business.   

I welcome you to personally experience professional service and contact us today.  Whether you are looking to buy your first business or you are selling and want to know how much your business is worth we can help.

We look forward to working with you on this exciting new chapter in your future.

Your Advocate in Business, 

Orlando M. Rivera, J.D.
