What Sets Us Apart

What Sets Us Apart

Search Experience

With a leadership team that includes the #3 and #7 top ETA returns of all time, we know what it means to be in all the peaks and valleys associated with this career choice. At our core, the founders of Next Coast ETA are entrepreneurs and operators who have run the full cycle of the asset class and know what it takes to achieve outsized returns.

Digital Transformation

While a decade ago entrepreneurs could deprioritize technology in the lower/middle market, today, it is ubiquitous and critical in a CEO's playbook. Strongly aligned with Next Coast Ventures, we have a perspective on technology unique to the ETA market. We help our searchers optimize technology at all points of their search and operations.

Connected

With over 20 years in and around the ETA ecosystem, our team is embedded in the current trends and opportunities affecting the search model. We are thought leaders on emerging themes for acquisition and are couriers of current information to our searchers regarding new and innovative ways to produce promising deal flow, quality acquisitions and meaningful exits.

Diversity

Our in-depth criteria used in vetting searchers continues to produce a rich, vibrant and representative tapestry of searchers who in turn will become that next crop of successful business leaders across the U.S. We celebrate the diversity of the entrepreneur and will continue to strive for a unique mix of searchers representing our investment.
