In the past few months I've heard the phrase "entrepreneurship through apprenticeship" a couple times and, on the surface, it sounds really attractive to me. The ability to enter as COO or similar, learn the business from the owner for a year+, get operating experience, maybe get compensated in equity etc all sound great, but I'm sure I'm neglecting many pros/cons.
Does anyone have any insight to share on the topic?
Any ideas on how one might find these kinds of opportunities (or even if they really exist)?
Any thoughts on how to pursue this kind of unique path would be appreciated.
