Acquisition Gauntlet

Discover whether being an Acquisition Entrepreneur is a good fit for you.

The Gauntlet is the best way to experience the business search process. We call it the Gauntlet because it serves as a crash course in finding, analyzing, and acquiring a business.


This self-paced course usually takes about a week to complete, and in the process you will analyze a real-life business that Acquira actually purchased.


The Gauntlet is a preview of everything it takes to acquire a business and will help you decide if it’s the right path for you.

Here are some of the things we look for in an Acquisition Entrepreneur:

  • Do you exhibit our core values (S.E.R.V.E.)?
  • Are you interested in doing multiple acquisitions over time?
  • Do you have relevant business experience or the drive to learn what you don’t know?
  • Beyond earning a healthy ROI, do you want to use your business to give back to your employees and your community?
