Topic:
Buy Vs. Build

Summary:
Entrepreneurship through acquisition is gaining popularity and provides a compelling business case for new and experienced entrepreneurs.

In recent years the practice of buying and operating small businesses as an entry into entrepreneurship has gained popularity, as well as generated significant capital gains for those who practice it. Even institutional investors have started to recognize the significant upside of investing in the small business space. Bryan Cambra will walk through his personal experience purchasing a small business in 2018, discuss some of the strategic aspects to consider during the process and present a case for why “M&A” is the single most valuable skill set an entrepreneur can develop.
