J.C. Maldonado III is the CEO of BizGro Partners. J.C originally founded the predecessor entity, that evolved into BizGro, in the year 2000 as a Mergers and Acquisitions Intermediary firm that focused on helping small and middle market companies buy and sell companies.

He also saw that Baby Boomer owners in their 50s and 60s are more apt to hold on to their businesses and expand their companies as opposed to exiting and retiring. This marketplace dynamic further influenced the decision for BizGro to go from being an M&A firm to a full service Business Development firm.
