The ‘online dating’ site for business buyers www.dealconnections.co.uk is seeing increased activity this week as people return from holiday and start to reconsider their options, awakening their ‘inner entrepreneur’.There is a free, 7-day trial login to the site.
James Waterhouse, who founded Deal Connections says: “There are a couple of times a year when people really get dissatisfied with their working life. The first is when they go back to work after the Christmas/New Year break and the second is when they return from summer holidays. We’re seeing that dissatisfaction reflected in activity on our site.”
Deal Connections was launched earlier this year to bring together business buyers and sellers. It provides the most comprehensive view of businesses for sale ever offered from one online source. There is a free, 7-day trial login to the site.
Waterhouse believes that a growing economy has combined with employment dissatisfaction this year. “There’s rarely been a better time to acquire a UK business,” he says. “Many of the economic indicators are positive whilst interest rates are still at an historic low.
“A number of high-profile Private Equity firms have raised SME funds recently – offering funding for exactly the kind of Management Buy-In (MBI) deals that this site is designed to bring about.”
For those planning to release their inner entrepreneur, www.dealconnections.co.uk currently has nearly 7,000 businesses offered for sale, ranging from a few hundred thousand pounds to many millions.
