I have the good fortune of living in the same town as my MBA school campus. I'm in the very early stages of learning about search funds and exploring the best way to go about getting started. I've scheduled a Q&A session with a faculty from the school's entrepreneurial center, but beyond this I'm looking for any advice on leveraging in-person access to an MBA program as an alum that I may not be considering.

In my mind, this should be a great asset, especially in the early stages of getting a fund started, and unfortunately I had no awareness of search funds while I was a student, so I've never tapped this source's potential for aid. 

Thank you for any suggestions!
