Hello Deadhead and All,

What's a Business Broker? Something like a real estate agent for buying and selling businesses?


Hey there Hans,

That's exactly what a business broker is. You could also say that they're like Investment Bankers for small businesses. They don't necessarily invest in the businesses with their own funds, but they assist with securing funding and also in valuing the business being acquired. They are primarily a service to match up qualified buyers with business owners interested in selling.

What's new with you? Anyone else lurking these days?
