'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

There's a lot more to creating a startup than just having a great idea. Having some sort of business training certainly helps. But if you want to give your startup the best chance of succeeding, you want to have quick access to all the pieces of the process, and that's exactly what you get with a Deal Desk Premium Plan. Best of all, it's currently available for only $99.

With just one simple tool, you can source deals from more than 20 buy and sell marketplaces, plus have access to an exclusive database of some of the highest quality early-stage bootstrapped founders and investors around the globe. That will make it a whole lot easier and quicker to identify the best strategic acquisition targets, partnerships, and investors in the startup ecosystem.

Deal Desk's database contains more than 20,000 vetted investor and founder contacts, as well as over 1,000 active startups that are listed for sale. You will be able to analyze the startups with information that is aggregated in real-time from the marketplaces.

In addition to valuable information, a Deal Desk Premium Plan provides you with valuable tools and a community of more than 1,000 other entrepreneurs who are building, buying, and selling startups of their own. That will give you access to more capital, customers, and connections than you could ever accumulate on your own.

You will be able to launch your own deal rooms and get a great deal of support from a Deal Desk Premium Plan when acquiring startups. And when you apply for the acquisition accelerator as a current member of The Deal Desk, your application will be fast-tracked.

More than $25,000 worth of templates and legal documents are included in the plan, as is a real-time chat functionality. It's no wonder subscribers rave about the Deal Desk Premium Plan. As noted by Matt D., COO of Bootstrapper Capital:

"This has made our entire deal cycle 1000% smoother, simpler, and easier for both sides of the table in every one of our transactions. I couldn't picture operating our fund without it at this point."
