STRAMGT 549: Search Fund Garage

Search Fund Garage is an intensive hands-on, project-based course for students planning to pursue a search fund directly after or within a few years of graduation. Students will learn from the instructors, course peers, and class visitors, particularly top current search entrepreneurs, CEOs, attorneys and investors. This course is designed to assist students who are seriously pursuing a search fund, although some enrolled students will likely end up deciding not to pursue one. Those who have taken Entrepreneurial Acquisition (S543) or engaged in meaningful conversation with the teaching team will benefit the most from this more advanced, experiential course. By the end of the course, students will be prepared to or will already have raised search capital and launched their search, if they choose to do so. Pursuing custom self-developed work plans that target the aspect of the search fund path most relevant to them at the time of the course, students will evaluate and attract investors, more »
Search Fund Garage is an intensive hands-on, project-based course for students planning to pursue a search fund directly after or within a few years of graduation. Students will learn from the instructors, course peers, and class visitors, particularly top current search entrepreneurs, CEOs, attorneys and investors.

Those who have taken Entrepreneurial Acquisition (S543) or engaged in meaningful conversation with the teaching team will benefit the most from this more advanced, experiential course. By the end of the course, students will be prepared to or will already have raised search capital and launched their search, if they choose to do so. Pursuing custom self-developed work plans that target the aspect of the search fund path most relevant to them at the time of the course, students will evaluate and attract investors, structure their search entity, set up their process and outreach materials, identify attractive industries and companies, begin to reach out to business owners, and develop wisdom about what makes a deal attractive or unattractive, among other things. Students will work with business owners, mentors and industry experts to deeply understand the search fund model. Each student, or team, will contact real business owners and receive feedback on how they can be a more effective search fund entrepreneur. This course is offered by the Graduate School of Business. The class will combine the processes taught in Entrepreneurial Acquisition (S543) and detailed in the Primer on Search Funds (2016) with elements from the discovery process taught in Startup Garage (in particular, running preliminary experiments to test proposed methodologies). The course provides a supportive yet challenging environment that will help students step outside of their comfort zone and accelerate learning. By the end of the course each will be better prepared to launch a search than many of the searchers who have come before.
