Search Funds are a neat mechanism for being an entrepreneur. I saw a panel about them out at Stanford last year. Basically you raise money, buy a firm, turn it around, then possibly sell it.
We were contact about a website dedicated to the search fund community. MBA students take note.

"One of our recent search fund clients has just launched what I believe is the first website dedicated solely to the search fund community: http://searchfunds.com. This will be another great resource for students interested in search funds."
