21 Places to Buy and Sell Startup Projects

When you build products online, you create assets that can be sold to other people.

Whether it’s software tools or content sites or ecommerce stores or newsletters or databases or anything else. You’re creating value that others may want to buy.

So when you’ve taken a project as far as you can, or got bored, or need a lump sum of cash, or don’t have time for it. You can list on a marketplace and wait for the offers to come in.

On the flip side, you might not want to start a product from zero. You can buy something readymade, even with revenue already in place. (Before buying, always do your due diligence and get expert advice if you don’t have experience).

I’ve built and sold a number of projects over the last few years and wrote about one of my experiences here:

Where can you buy and sell online assets…?

I’ve put together a list of popular marketplaces. It is not comprehensive — there are many small niche ones out there. But it’s enough to get you started.

The main part of the list covers lower cost small projects as well as more expensive ones.

In a separate section at the end I’ve included some more “inspirational” marketplaces that focus on 6 to 8 figure deals.
