Connecting with Entrepreneurs

Post by creditdefaultswaps » Thu Sep 13, 2018 10:09 pm

I'm exploring creating a Search Fund and raising private equity to acquire a boring established business with solid cashflows.

I'd like to connect with other entrepreneurs who are either pursuing this path or have already gone through it. How can I find and attempt to connect with folks who are knowledgeable in this area? I'd like to pick their brain and pickup whatever insights that might make my journey a little smoother. I'm a member of my local Chamber of Commerce and plan to attend an SBDC networking meeting to start.

- SCORE
- SBDC in your area and ones in adjacent areas
- Angel investing groups near you
- LinkedIn
- Any larger local funding group(s)

Was not aware of SCORE. Thanks.
