After following the link, enter your city, state and zip code to get a list of investment bankers businesses in your area.

Before you open up shop, make sure you know what you will offer to your customers that provides a significant advantage over your competition's offering.

Learning More About the Industry

If you are seriously contemplating launching an investment bankers business, it's essential that you talk to somebody who is already in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. Why would they want to educate a future competitor?

Fortunately, somebody who runs an investment bankers business in a location that is not competitive to you can be a great learning resource for you, provided that you won't be directly competing with them. Many business owners are happy to give advice to new entrepreneurs In my experience, you may have to call ten business owners in order to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

Benefits & Drawbacks of an Investment Bankers Business Acquisition

An acquisition can be a great way to enter investment bankers business ownership. But it's important to evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of buying a business before you decide on either an acquisition or startup approach.

BENEFITS: Existing companies have proven business models and a history of profitability. They should also have some degree of brand recognition and an established customer base.

DRAWBACKS: On the downside, investment bankers business acquisitions can be difficult to adapt to your unique business philosophy so it's important to make sure the business is capable of achieving your ownership goals before you initiate the buying process.

Don't Forget About Franchising As an Option

As an entrepreneur, your chances being a successful business owner increase if you decide to franchise and benefit from the prior work of others and their lessons learned.

Before you consider starting an investment bankers business, it's worthwhile to determine whether franchise opportunities in your space might increase your chances of success.
