Applying to grad school for an MBA. I see that search funds are becoming more and more popular. However, I've read into the significant difficulties surrounding a search fund (search fund founders are, after all, basically entrepreneurs). If this is something I ultimately look into and the search fund fails to find a deal, can I leverage that experience into MM / LMM PE or growth equity? I assume the skills (sourcing, deal structuring, etc.) are similar, but unsure if it has been done. If not, what happens to the search fund dude? Corp dev? "Strategy"? Chick-fil-a?
