MacUpdate Selling Out to the Man?

MacUpdate has always been, not only a great location to search for Mac software, but also a great community to find software reviews and to pit products against each other. Because of their Mac-only approach, I often put them ahead of Versiontracker in investigating software. That is why I was disheartened when I read that the were looking to sell.. Perhaps they are just looking to get valued for additional funding ..there is a lot of chatter going on in that community with the 200 free MacWorld tickets they are providing…

Online business appraiser (w/possible acquisition background)

Company: MacUpdate
Location: Anywhere

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.
