Key Points From the Interview
renden Van Buren has seen search from 2 angles.
He's a successful searcher himself, having acquired a fencing business in 2018.
And, he started a search accelerator at Carnegie Mellon, so he closely observed and invested in a number of searches.
In today's interview we dive into both these experiences.
I press Brenden on buying a fencing business, which is essentially a construction business.
Construction businesses are known for being highly cyclical and project based, 2 attributes that investors typically tell searchers to avoid.
Really valuable to hear his answer to that, because as you probably have seen on BizBuySell and elsewhere, there are a lot of construction-related businesses for sale out there.
And then we also get Brenden's perspective on the art of search and what he's learned by working with and investing in other searchers.
