communEtA is a formal investment fund dedicated to acquisition-stage investments in EtA (i.e., self-funded and traditional equity gaps). Our value add to searchers is simple:

    1) $100-200k checks with the ability to invest much more through co-investment from our investors

    2) Closing and diligence support from MBA students at the top business schools in the nation, several with direct lower-middle market investment experience

    3) Direct access to the community we've built: an investor base made up of some of the most successful searchers of all time, the exceptional searchers we've backed, and         talented student investment partners with robust school/professional networks      

If you are looking for an investor that can make a decent-size investment, add value to your acquisition process, and give you unprecedented access, send us a note at We want to connect with you whether you have a deal under LOI or not.
