Evolution Of Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition



As we conclude 2016, Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition (i.e., Search Funds) is more robust and exciting than ever, with new models and new investors funding more searchers than ever before, and this trend is gaining momentum. The feedback we heard from investors is that more talented and better prepared search fund entrepreneurs, combined with a large and growing pool of available companies, and a robust capital structure will lead to continued growth in this asset class for the foreseeable future.

“What we can say based on the 44 interviews we had with investors is that the ETA sector will continue to grow and evolve as long as it continues to deliver the outsized returns that have made it one of the most attractive investment areas in recent times.”

Josh Dennis, Erick Laseca, Chicago Booth
