MacUpdate.com, a popular Mac software tracker, posted a job search for an “Online business appraiser (w/possible acquisition background)” at CrunchBoard.
MacUpdate is the most popular Macintosh-only software website on the Internet. It’s been organically growing since 1996. It’s essentially one of two websites that control most of the Macintosh software updates.
We’re looking for a qualified organization or person that has experience in appraising online businesses. You should have experience valuing both smaller and multi-million dollar online communities. A track record of previous valuations is very important.
Experience working with VC capital funding and business acquisition is important. Having a network of investors and companies looking to make acquisitions is a bonus.
Physical location is not important.
Looks like MacUpdate is looking for an appraisal of their business with hints at acquisition or venture capital funding.
About 6 months ago, MacRumors.com was approached by an investment firm who was looking into the Mac marketplace as an up-and-coming market. Nothing came of that, but does show that with Apple’s growing popularity, companies are becoming more interested in this growing market.
