  • This event has passed.

Interested in buying, owning and running a small business shortly after your MBA? Like entrepreneurship but don’t have a great startup idea? Ever thought about Entrepreneurship through Acquisition?

Attend the Annual Search Fund Conference, hosted by the Entrepreneurship through Acquisition Club at Harvard Business School.

The conference will paint a vivid picture of how searches work—both from the investor and searcher perspective. Through panels and presentations, the conference will cover the following topics:

  • Choosing Your Model & Raising Capital. Learn how investors evaluate searchers.
  • Going International. Assess the added challenges and opportunities of a non-US search.
  • Closing The Deal. Investigate the processes of a search fund acquisition.
  • Searching & Prospecting. Compare strategies and tactics for finding a company to acquire.
  • The First 100 Days. Evaluate the main challenges, best practices and tactics of managing your business post-acquisition.
  • Dealing With Adversity. Examine what happens when searchers encounter adversities.
  • Meet the Investors. Hear from the capital providers.
