Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition

Become part of our vibrant community.


About Us

The ETA Club's mission is to educate and motivate Ross MBA students to pursue a career in entrepreneurship through acquisition / search funds. By gathering students, alumni, investors, advisors, and business owners to discuss finding, acquiring, and running lower-middle-market (LMM) companies, the ETA Club hopes to inspire the next-generation of purpose-driven leaders. To accomplish this, the Club organizes educational sessions with ETA investors, hosts an annual conference, and provides resources -- such as introductions to anchor investors and internships -- to prepare students to launch their own search fund.
