The Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition Club at Harvard Business school will be holding its 6th annual conference on Sunday, December 6th, 2020. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be held in a remote setting.

The one-day event will bring together students, searchers, CEOs, owners, investors, and service providers from across the world for a day of keynote speeches, panels, and networking sessions. Experienced moderators and panelists will be discussing a wide array of topics including tactical sourcing deep dives, value creation strategies, challenges of being a first time CEO, and more. The conference will paint a vivid picture of how searches work—from the perspectives of investors, CEOs, and searchers.

Attendance will be capped and we expect tickets to sell out, so get your tickets now!

We’re also excited to announce that there will be four "Resource Chat" sessions led by various service providers on Saturday, December 5th from 4-6pm ET. Topics include deal structuring, lender communications, tax considerations for buyers/sellers, and current market legal/contract terms. We are envisioning these to be highly tactical educational sessions delivered by lenders, attorneys, and accountants. Access is available with your purchase of a conference ticket – please join us and buy a ticket!
