About Booth ETA

Chicago Booth Entrepreneurship through Acquisition (Booth ETA) is a suite of programs and resources designed to provide graduating students and alumni access to the education, capital, mentorship, and resources necessary to acquire and grow small businesses.

These offerings include: a credit-bearing course on the ETA process; an annual conference on ETA co-hosted with the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University; a first-of-its kind Investor Summit, where carefully-screened search fund entrepreneurs present to top investors from across the nation; an active student group focused on ETA; access to seasoned advisors and mentors; and a robust network of alumni pursuing careers in ETA.
