Hello Community,

Thanks for all the conversation on this platform. Past 2 weeks have been a learning journey reading your thoughts, opinions & passion for ETA. I'm an experienced founder, coming off a 3-mth sabbatical, after closing a modest exist of my previous tech startup.

I stumbled onto SF model while building a thesis around a vertical software technology segment and I wondered if it is at all common for search funded companies to end up becoming an acquisition vehicle in adjacent tech sub-segments (if the deals & funding is attractive). I realize what I'm talking about may operationally sound like a Buyout fund, but i'm not sure if people have taken Search Fund route to accomplish this.
