Business Explorer is a new marketplace for buying and selling operating businesses and companies. I built this idea out of frustration with the high prices and low-return from listing businesses on business for sale websites. BE changes the game, being completely free and easy to use. It is designed to offer the same experience from the most experienced professional to the first-time business owner.

Just a few, short years ago I was just another business owner that was unfamiliar with the business sale process. Even with the rise of technology and the ease of business advice at our fingertips, still, nothing out there was opening the door for buyers and sellers. With Business Explorer, our sole mission is to not only modernize the access process between buyers and sellers, but to encourage those entrepreneurs out there that are just waiting to burst from their shell. There’s nothing more satisfying than to BE the change in someone’s life, and fortunately, I get to stand behind a service that does just that!
