Sometimes starting a business from the ground up can be a lot of work, especially for those looking for something on the side while working their 9 to 5. With the world quickly getting accustomed to the digital age, an overflow of digital businesses begin to arise. 
 
To synchronize with the fast growth, Flippa has become the heart of the new economy. Their platform is a marketplace for digital assets from eCommerce stores to newsletters to SaaS companies to even online businesses. It’s built around a community that realizes the value of investing, making money, and starting a new digital journey.
