About
Aravind Namasivayam
Restaurant Entrepreneur

Aravind quickly grew frustrated with the outdated technology, lack of transparency, and extended timeframes necessary for him to add new restaurants to his operation. He was even using Craigslist to find opportunities at one point with frustrating outcomes.

Shan Sundaram
Tech Entrepreneur

When Shan bought a boutique consulting shop, he experienced many pain points that slowed the process down. Seeing an opportunity, he wanted to build something for brick & mortar entrepreneurs to make their buying & selling of businesses transparent & easier.

Aimee Zhang
Real Estate Broker and Entrepreneur

Aimee routinely connects with other business owners. She has also helped many people sell their businesses when ready. However, she had yet to discover a single platform that worked for multiple business types. She believes BizPappa is the platform she wanted to solve those frustrations.

The experiences each founder had working in small business industry led them to join forces and launch BizPappa - a marketplace for buying and selling local businesses!
