Information about entrepreneurship through acquisition and search funds was traditionally accessible only to a select group of elite MBA students. Searchfunder.com has been painstakingly built from scratch, exclusively for the global search fund community.
Our Searchfunder community contains people seeking to accomplish one of the most stressful and largest tasks of their careers -- buying a company to run. To get that task done, searchers need to connect with other searchers, investors, lenders and professionals. While knowledge of the model is growing, it is time-consuming and labor intensive to identify -- on your own -- reliable resources that are knowledgeable and supportive of search funds. Luckily, Searchfunder has painstakingly done that leg work for you.
Most searchers have a finite time to ramp up their search operation, then conduct their search for an acquisition target and finally to successfully close a deal. It's time-consuming enough to educate family, friends, networks and business owners about search funds. Thus, searchers should save as much time as possible on the other significant milestones on their journey: addressing ramp-up issues, connecting to funding sources, and accessing knowledgeable professionals.
We are a community of 6000 members (and growing!) devoted to the search fund model. Our community also includes operators who have successfully acquired one or more businesses. Operating Searchfunder.com so that it remains a vibrant, active and helpful community takes round-the-clock sustained effort and, yes, money. Your fee helps to cover our hard costs to make the community work well for you.
^[redacted], ^[redacted] and ^[redacted] strive each day to make Searchfunder.com a better community. Many of the features you'll see on Searchfunder are based on member feedback. So, we wholeheartedly welcome your feedback in building a community that serves you better.
We have wonderful options for cost conscious members to earn discounts for free access to the community by engaging in activities that contribute to the well being of the community. To obtain complete access to Searchfunder, you must register. Your 30 day trial begins once you complete your registration. You may cancel at anytime.
SEARCHFUNDER IS FREE, IF YOU POST.
Posting or commenting access discount
You earn 30 days of additional free access for each post or comment you make on Searchfunder. You can bank up to 12 months of additional access at once so it's easy to keep your membership free if you choose.
For any referral resulting in a new paid Searchfunder membership, both you and your referee will receive a permanent 33% discount on your paid subscription. You can earn free access indefinitely to Searchfunder by referring 3 new members. Your referee must use your unique referral link for you both to receive this special referral discount. Your unique referral link is included in the footer of nearly every Searchfunder email to make it as easy as possible for you to share.
Regular notice of account status
Your remaining free access (if applicable) is displayed in 3 places:
* on the top left hand corner of nearly every Searchfunder page (while logged in)
* in the footer of nearly every email we send
* On your account info dashboard
If your free access expires and your paid subscription begins, you can still earn a pro-rata Searchfunder credit by posting or commenting during the billing cycle. These credits will offset any future paid subscription charges. Because we offer so many easy ways to earn free access, there are no refunds for unused access credits. Cancellations are effective immediately.
Thus, if you are a searcher or someone who can provide investment or professional support to our searchers, Searchfunder.com is the place for you.
