About SEEK Business

Our Story

SEEK Business began with a vision of helping people throughout their career, whatever it may be! Many people start of their career by getting a job, and end up running their own business or even a number of businesses later in life.

SEEK Business was launched in late 2006 to fill a need for people with experience, entrepreneurial nature, or simply those who wish to manage their business or want a life change. As a result, it quickly became Australia’s leading online marketplace for buying and selling business and franchise opportunities.

Most of our business seekers are in the 35-55 age group, on a well above average income, with a university degree and already investing*. About 40% are ready to buy a business, while 60% are browsing the ads and could be tempted with the right opportunity.

Being part of the SEEK family, SEEK Business today enjoys a strong brand and expertise in the online market. We are experts at matching people with possibilities.
