The BusinessPortal range of websites brings willing business-investors or -buyers together with willing business-owners,-sellers or -starters. The idea is to share relevant information to find the best fit and facilitate a smoother negotiation.
The information requested from business owners by the BusinessPortal range of websites is very detailed but it would be required for the due diligence process in the event of any of successful business deal. Thus, once an agreement is reached, the information merely needs to be verified for due diligence. The amount of time needed to gather and submit this information as well as the fees charged for advertising on the BusinessPortal range of websites is an indication of the intent of the business owner to sell or grow the business. It is also an indication of the business competence of the current owner. The release of the most sensitive information to interested parties will always remain at the discretion of the business owner.
Though limited information will be available to the general public, interested investors will be required to pay a monthly membership fee to have access to richer information and the opportunity to chat with current business owners. This will be an indication of their serious intent to invest time and money into a business.
