ENTREPRENEURSHIP THROUGH ACQUISITIONS - WITH BRIAN O'CONNOR AND JAY DAVIS
DATE & LOCATION
Time: 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM
An increasingly popular route to success as a small business owner is through “entrepreneurship through acquisition (ETA)”, with one of many “ETA” paths being a “search fund” — buying and running an existing operation. Entrepreneurs sometimes choose to forgo the traditional model of starting a business from nothing and instead focus on acquiring and operating an already established successful business. If you are interested in learning more or considering such a path, join the HBS Club of Washington DC in a conversation with Brian O’Connor and Jay Davis for an overview and current trends in entrepreneurship through acquisitions, and their experience and practical advice for each stage in the process.
