Deal Scouts

Know a great business?  Share it!

If you come across a great business, we'd love to hear about it

​Our “friends & family” approach to finding great businesses goes back to our roots – the first business that we bought was referred to Alex by a friend.  GBFIO loves referrals, and we continue to find that promising deals – and lasting relationships – are born out of personal introductions.

Historically, we received informal referrals and chose to pay finders fees.  Our Deal Scout Program was created to extend this “shared success” philosophy to a larger group of collaborators -- individuals who can extend our vision by identifying promising businesses. 

How it works

1. Sign up as a Deal Scout below
2. When you find a promising business, refer it to the Gelman Brothers team and introduce us to the owner
3. If we close the deal, we’ll send you a Giant Check ($50,000)

We enjoy getting to know our Deal Scouts and looking for great companies together.  We also periodically engage with our Deal Scout Network when looking for operators and industry experts.
