ETA Day 1
Managing a Search Fund Business – A Discussion with CEOs
Presented by Professional Bank. This panel discussion with ETA operators will focus on three key areas of operating a business – people, strategy, and finance – as well as the challenges and learnings CEOs have found.
Cybersecurity and Implementation
Presented by Mowery & Schoenfeld. “So you own a business, now what?” This panel will take a realist look at the financial, accounting, and cybersecurity challenges facing business owners. Participants will leave equipped with practical tools to help them make solid decisions during the search phase that will set them up for success as an early owner-operator.
Operating and Searching Amidst COVID-19
Presented by NextGen Growth Partners. This discussion will address how NextGen Growth Partners navigated the impacts of COVID-19. They will discuss the various ways their portfolio companies and entrepreneurs-in-residence adapted to unforeseen circumstances, and how they leveraged their ecosystem to weather the storm, innovate, and capitalize on great opportunities.
