02 Jan The Apprentice Star Mergim Butaja yields success with million pound business
Since appearing as a candidate on BBC’s The Apprentice in 2015, Mergim Butaja has established a hugely successful business which has gone from strength to strength. Using the knowledge he gained from The Apprentice and his existing business expertise, International Business Acquisitions Ltd was formed. Mergim overcame a major stumbling block, setting the business up with virtually no capital and in just a short space of time the business now generates business sales in excess of £1,000,000.
International Business Acquisitions experienced a period of rapid growth over the following months and Mergim currently manages a portfolio of 60 businesses. Within this extensive portfolio Mergim has a number of high value businesses on its books including a Brazilian iron ore mine which is worth over £100,000,000. What’s more, the business is backed by a strong team of specialists who have over 30 years experience in mergers and acquisitions.
Mergim hopes to continue growing International Business Acquisitions in 2017, expanding his business portfolio and securing new contracts with large corporate entities. Mergim works closely with Jamie his business partner, who has extensive experience acquired over 12 years in the industry. This knowledge has proved invaluable to International Business Acquisitions and has helped the company grow and succeed.
Not only has Mergim been successful with his own venture, he has used his knowledge to help fellow Apprentice candidate Scott Saunders to invest wisely in his own business, providing expert advice and guidance to ensure his new business was also a success. Mergim helped Scott find investment for his business which provided him with strong foundations on which to build the firm for future growth.
