View Full Version : Where do I find individuals to buy a business? Not PE

12-14-2016, 03:30 PM
Hello all,
I am new to this forum and this is my first post. Thank you for reading.

As a business broker, I'm often faced with the task of finding the right buyer for a business. There are plenty of private equity (PE) firms out there wanting to check out my inventory but my hard-working clients are wary of selling to these firms; understandably so.

We advertise among many platforms when a business is for sale but not many of these platforms are geared towards the individual strategic investor. Often our clients want to sell their business to someone who is familiar with their field and we often find difficulty in making contact with that perfect successor, though we are generally successful.

Do any of you here have suggestions to help us contact general individuals interested in buying businesses in their field? Our goal in asking this is to build a respectable database of individuals and their investment mandates so that later on we can reach out when a deal meets their criteria.

How about advertising it on sites like BizBuySell.com? I'm looking to buy a business, I've been searching there, a lot!

What about starting a Facebook group along the lines of "getting out of the rat race" and doing a little advertising?

BUSINESS WANTED. I am a serious, well-capitalized (800+ credit rating) mid-40s prospective buyer of a services business, preferably one that is home based with ~$200k or more in SDE. Feel free to message me if you are looking to sell your business, along with some information about it. Please only do so if you are a principal/owner - I prefer not to deal with brokers as my experience so far is that they just make the process less efficient. Happy to provide more information about myself first via a private exchange, if you wish. I look forward to hearing from you!

We know riding your motorbike, moped or cycle can often be for communting to and from work. Its not suprising you will be carrying a number of personal items with you in your saddlebags, rucksack or built in glove/document box.
If your mobile phone, laptop, tablet, bike computer (https://www.bikeinjurysolicitors.co.uk/damaged-phone-laptop-tablet/) or any other item has been damaged as a result of your accident you are entitled to recover the costs of either repairing it or replacing it, if it has been damaged beyond repair.

​It is important that you retain the original receipt and the item in its damaged state as evidence to support your claim. We advise you also take images of the damaged item after the accident to support your claim.

We will ensure any damaged item is included as part of your claim and recovered from the at fault party.

It's great you are thinking in this way (planning for the future, respecting your clients and wanting to find the right buyers for them, etc.). I think it's all about establishing relationships with people as you conduct business. The buyers you will trust the most are ones who you've known for a little while or are capable of seeing/observing their past business (their industry knowledge, their financial state, whether they have bankruptcies, etc). Your clients will trust your choice of buyers if you thoroughly do your background checks and if you are striving to find buyers who understand your client's industry/business.

Old thread but anyway a useful one because I was just looking for this.
In general, I like to be as informed as possible in all areas because I realize how important this aspect is. You can't do anything in this life without having information because that's the basis.
For example, I want to start a business soon. I would not be able to do it to the maximum if I had not pursued a long time in this field and I would not see how other entrepreneurs have come a long way.
For this reason for several months, I have been paying close attention to this aspect and I have started to gather as much information as possible and this site https://www.businessupside.com/ helped me a lot so I am sure that I will be successful because I have really prepared myself intensely for something like this.

Head to local meet-ups or tradeshows where you can talk to brokers or potential buyers. You'll likely still want your business sale information online somewhere that you can easily direct interested parties to. When making your decision consider both cost and timeline as well as how important they are to you.
