The most common problem that is there in todays youth is they want to be an entrepreneur but they dont have any clue what they should do.

Why buy a running business?

Less Risk

In starting your own business, the whole risk of your investment is on your shoulders and the capability of yours to convert an idea into a reality. In India, it is seen that even some startups find investments get shut down after a while so wouldnt it better to find a solution with less risk. In buying a business you already know whether the business is doing great or not so you can make an informative and a more confident decision.

One-time Investment

Unlike startups, you dont need to invest in business from time to time as the business is still functioning and also generating revenue. It is a just one-time investment which you have to make while buying the business. Generally, all startups are at a loss in the first one to two years, so think wouldnt it be better to start earning from the beginning by buying a business.

Availability of resources

Well buying a business has some of its own benefit like you already have a process going on which could be supplied from a supplier, customer base, production, machinery and even running a business can get loans easily from banks. You dont have to take tension on how to build your network as you already have one.


You dont need to market yourself as much as it is needed in starting a new business. Your business name is already well known among the customers as well as competitors so there is already an existence of demand for your product.


Buying a business is a better option than starting your own venture can be concluded from the above-mentioned points. But there are some exceptional cases in which startup works too but that depends on the idea and its execution. If interested in buying or selling a business then BusinessEx is the best option for you.
