Entrepreneurs in Search of a Company

via IE University

Entrepreneurs are not limited to building their own projects from scratch. Blake Winchell details the pros, cons, and rewards for those who take the entrepreneurship through acquisition path.

So, you want to be an entrepreneur? You could spend the next five to 10 years on an unproven business model, struggle to get a working product, suffer through multiple fundraising rounds, eke out first revenue, hope nothing breaks as you try to scale, and then pray for a good economy when it comes time to sell or IPO. All this with a very high probability you will shut the company down or are fired by your board along the way.

An alternative is to raise a search fund.
