since many of us are fairly entrepreneurial maybe this can be a place we post our new ventures so that we can maybe help one another if it ever comes up.
at the beginning of 2018 i started a new venture with a former colleague of mine, the co-founder of CARSTAR in Canada. We’ve been hustling away all year and while things are still definitely in a start up phase the last month has been extremely busy with NDA’s and retainer agreements. We have entered LOI on what will be our first completed transaction.
www.collisionbuilders.com is the business. Our focus is professional valuations, developing the marketing package and then putting best-in-class collision centers up for sale and supporting the transactions all the way to closure.
After we close on the opportunities we have in the pipeline now I will bring the business into the US at some point in 2019.
I also have another venture brewing in the mitigation and restoration business which may create some opportunities if any of your guys are qualified PM’s or in the restoration side of things. There is activity with US based players already but nothing in NY. It will likely take a year or so before anything is worth discussing though.
