One of the things that Dan and Ian love about creating this podcast is that they not only get to talk to some pretty interesting people, but they also get to follow their stories as they build and scale their businesses.
Since we last talked, Brent’s team has more or less doubled. They’ve made a decision to raise capital, bought a headquarters in Columbia, Missouri and Brent has written a book about buying businesses called “The Messy Marketplace“.
On today’s episode, we are revisiting Brent’s story and hearing how Adventur.es has grown since we last spoke.
You’ll also hear how things have changed since they have raised over 50 million dollars in investment capital, and why Brent decided to write a book aimed at those selling and buying businesses.

- Some of the ways that Adventur.es differs from other private equity firms. (7:48)
