Colorado Business Brokers is a newly-formed collaborative of business brokers that offers to put our systems, teamwork and track record to work for you! My founding partners are Carolyn Ryan and Scott D. Perry.

Systems: Business coaching and selling the way it should be done!

• Valuation Systems - Helping clients establish and defend business values – both enterprise market values and a
business owner’s core values – are our specialties.
• Confidentiality Systems - Preserving confidentiality is an everyday procedure for us. We know how to camouflage
the identity of businesses and business owners and guard proprietary information.
• Marketing & Resourcing Systems - A coordinated and on-going campaign to sell businesses, coupled with a wide
variety of coaching assignments, benefits all of our clients.
• Screening & Qualifying Systems - Screening and qualifying buyer prospects is what we do for our business seller
clients. Screening and qualifying new ideas and trends is what we do for coaching clients.
• Negotiation & Closing Systems - Focused agenda-setting grows and sells businesses. It also addresses frustrations
by clarifying alternative choices. We are clear about our role as a broker and/or coach.

Teamwork: Business coaching and selling the way you want it done!

• Cooperation & Collaboration - We provide two agents for each of our seller clients, almost unheard of in our
profession. Most brokerage firms just allocate one broker to serve each listing client. We also encourage teamwork
with other business intermediaries and professionals.
• Knowledge - We are well connected to world-wide experts and resources. Check us out on LinkedIn. I'm at
www.LinkedIn.com/in/glencooper.
• Experience - Our many co-experts and go-to resources are grounded in the real world of business ownership.
• Accessibility- You can’t miss us if you’re searching for a Colorado business connection! You can find us - and so can
prospective business buyers!

Track Record: Business coaching and selling the way it is done!

• Over 35 Years of Selling & Coaching - We can give you plenty of references. You can also check us out online.
• Best Marketing Materials for Clients - Our "Offering Summaries" are acclaimed as "the best!" No kidding.

About

I am founder and managing partner of Colorado Business Brokers. Carolyn Ryan and Scott Perry are the other two founding partners. We work collaboratively for our business selling clients. I have sold over 500 businesses in my 35-year+ career as a business broker! Don't be distracted by the current BizBuySell tabulations, which record only my recent, Colorado-based and publicly-reported sales and listings on BizBuySell. I have worked in 3 states and also coach business brokers and business owners nationwide.

A business broker who is ALSO a business coach offers unique assistance to buyers and sellers! My many years as a credentialed business broker, appraiser and coach makes a difference. Check me out here or at www.Linkedin/in/glencooper.

What Is A Business Broker / Business Coach?

A business broker helps small business owners sell their businesses. This is a mostly-confidential business involving the valuation and marketing of firms, run by owner-operators, with typical sales transaction sizes under $10 million. To be a successful business broker requires a unique combination of analytical, financial and sales skills.

A business coach helps business owners build valuable businesses. Most business coaches, however, come from – and work for – large corporations as “executive coaches.” Only a few know about – or can coach – the owner-operators of small businesses. A great coach knows how to ask probing questions, listen to the answers and help a client gain clarity about any issue - and move forward!

The combined skills of a successful business broker and coach – the analytical, financial, sales, listening and questioning abilities – can provide powerful counsel and/or coaching to a business owner AND to a prospective business buyer.

Each of us at Colorado Business Brokers sells small businesses and coaches small business owners and small business buyers. We are unique among our peers. I am a credentialed and highly successful business broker of long standing, as well a creative and innovative business and professional coach, now practicing in Denver, Colorado.

I was a Certified Business Intermediary (CBI) (2006-2013) and a Fellow of the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA)(2008-2013). I was also a Certified Business Appraiser (CBA) (1984-2011) and Business Valuator Accredited for Litigation (BVAL) (1999-2011) from the Institute of Business Appraisers, as well as a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) (1985-1993) of the National Association of Realtors, a designation for expertise in commercial and investment real estate.

I maintained all those designations when I ran a large business brokerage firm in New England. I sold that firm in 2010, moved back to my original home state of Colorado. I then practiced as a sole practitioner by choice from 2010-2018. I now have chosen to form a new company, a genuinely collaborative business brokerage practice with two others, Carolyn Ryan and Scott Perry.

I serve on the Board of Directors of the Colorado Association of Business Intermediaries (CABI). Our new Colorado Business Brokers website is www.ColoradoBusinessBrokers.co.
