What is Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition?

Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition, or ETA, entails the acquisition and expansion of established small businesses that have already proven their viability in the market. Those embarking on this journey are often referred to as 'searchers.' The scope of these transactions can vary significantly, ranging from $25,000 to $25 million for a single company. ETA entrepreneurs typically secure a majority stake in the businesses they invest in, assuming the role of CEO to oversee their operations and growth. For many, the ultimate goal is to sell the business for a profit within a five to seven-year timeframe. Searchers have the flexibility to explore opportunities across diverse industries.

How do I buy a business?

We equipped our students to different paths to acquire a business including the traditional search fund model where a searcher raises funds from investors for both the search and acquisition, self-funded searches followed by investor fundraising, self-funded searches combined with SBA-backed loans, and participation in CEO in Training or accelerator programs to gain essential skills and experience in business operations.
