How do I find buyers interested in a 50% ownership of a 5-year growing business?

My business partner & I may need to split up and I would want to buy her out and continue with the business. I don't have the money, so I thought there may be someone interested in partnering with me. I wasn't sure how to find such a person.

I agree with Peter. If your current partnership is not working, why go into business with a complete stranger that owns 50% of the business. If you do, who's in control? Buy out your current partner so you own 100% of the business, otherwise sell the business entirely and split what's left over 50-50 with your partner.

How to Buy a Business

Would you like to end up with 100% of the business? If you would, why not buy her out at 10% per year over the next five years? Few business sellers walk away with the entire selling price on closing day. If leaving was her idea, you have leverage here. OTOH, if you are trying to push her out she will be justified in wanting as much as possible on the day she stops coming to work.
