Dynamis Ltd owns various innovative web titles and services that support and connect business owners, entrepreneurs, business intermediaries, and franchisors across the world.
Demetrios Markou, an accountant operating in Birmingham, finds he needs a place to list his clients’ businesses and premises for sale. The magazine “Businesses and Premises for Sale” is born.
Demetrios’ sons Marcus and Andrew Markou, along with entrepreneur Nick Pili take over the running of the magazine. BusinessesForSale.com soon emerges as a bulletin board service to support the original magazine and flourishes during the dotcom boom of the late 90s. Dynamis Ltd, the media group, is formed.
With the success of BusinessesForSale.com greatly superseding that of the magazine, “Businesses and Premises for Sale” ceases publication.
BusinessesForSale.com is now the largest global database of businesses for sale, spanning more than 100 countries and attracting thousands of buyers and sellers daily.
We raise £1.7 million from Angel Investors to support the development of BusinessesForSale.com and other new potential titles.
To compliment BusinessesForSale.com, we create a dedicated website for buying and selling franchises in the UK. FranchiseSales.com is launched.
FranchiseSales.com builds on fast moving success. Now a key player in the franchise industry, the website expands to 9 other countries.
Building on the success of BusinessesForSale.com and FranchiseSales.com, Dynamis Ltd looks to expand into a new market. PropertySales.com emerges to accommodate the premium end of the commercial property market.
As we attend trade shows every year, Dynamis joins forces with event organisers Prysm. We establish Businesses For Sale Live – a seminar theatre at the UK’s largest business event, The Business Show, which is dedicated to educating buyers and sellers about the transfer process.
Dynamis Ltd expands its operations by opening its subsidiary company Dynamis APAC Pty Ltd based in Sydney Australia. Long term employee Faye Ferris and husband Darren take the opportunity and responsibility to relocate to Australia to take up the active day-to-day management of Dynamis APAC Pty Ltd and its expansion into the Asia Pacific region.
BusinessesesForSale.com hits the road and atends 15 different trade shows in London, Birmingham, Manchester, and New York City. The team travels 16,405 miles and hosts 24 hours of seminars.
To stimulate further growth and gain a strong competitive advantage, we acquire the competitor site Businessforsale.com.
