New to the ETA community and looking to learn more? You're not alone. As the University of Pennsylvania relishes in its $10M commitment to establish new Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition (ETA) programming, many in the mid-Atlantic are itching to investigate further into the major school of thought.
What is Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition? A new biz education program is coming to Wharton
There are multiple paths to entrepreneurship. One, of course, is to start your own company. Another? Acquire an existing one.
The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania announced plans last week to establish new Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition (ETA) programming supported by a $10 million gift from Ellen L. Hanson and Richard E. Perlman. The program will be housed at the school’s Venture Lab, a hub devoted to entrepreneurship and innovation within the business school for students and alumni.
Hanson and Perlman’s donation will help Venture Lab develop new curricula and workshops, support academic research, bring in experts, and select four Perlman Fellows to receive $50,000 grants to pursue ETA.
