Why Confidentiality is So Important

You’ll notice we talk a lot about confidentiality and the agreements of such on this website. That’s because when it comes to business sales, confidentiality is extremely important. Unfortunately, the age of the Internet, email and text-messaging has made and continues to make confidentiality more and more difficult achieve. More inexperienced brokers may not succeed, but here at Venture Opportunities, we know confidentiality is paramount to our success and yours.

Sometimes, people interested in buying or owning a business will see an ad for a business and immediately send an email asking for more information, expecting the current owner will happily email them back with the full financial and operational information. But that’s not how business sales work. When you work with a broker from Venture Opportunities, you know that you are only going to have qualified potential buyers to choose from.

Furthermore, often, a business owner will post an ad for the sale of his business without the knowledge of his customer base, partners, suppliers and staff.

Ensuring confidentiality throughout the duration of a business deal is one of the most important aspects of our jobs as business brokers. This is why we ask all of our clients to sign confidentiality agreements at the beginning of the process. Buying a business is not the same as buying a house or a car, and first-time potential business owners need to know that.
