Why Buy a Business
instead of Starting One?

Today’s entrepreneurs face many challenges, and starting an enterprise can be very risky. New farms and businesses have to raise capital, create brand recognition, and develop new relationships with suppliers, customers, and employees.

Buying an existing business has a number of advantages including: brand recognition, existing cash flow, trained and experienced staff, loyal client base, operating supplier relationships, mentorship, and access to financing.


How it works

There are many successful businesses all across Canada whose owners
are seeking qualified entrepreneurs to take over their enterprise.
