Buying an online business is a dream for a lot of students or professionals who have an entrepreneurial streak. Rather than take the risk of a traditional startup, these entrepreneurs look to acquire something that is already built and profitable.

In our experience at Quiet Light Brokerage, acquisition-minded entrepreneurs come from a variety of places, but more and more, Universities are teaching students how to successfully buy an online business rather than start an online business.

Which schools are doing this best? Which cities seem to produce the most notable entrepreneurs?

  • Which cities are entrepreneurial tech hubs
  • Notable universities offering entrepreneurship through acquisition courses
