About GTE

Founded in 2017, GT Entrepreneurs (GTE) is a private investment firm that leverages its vast search fund and executive-level expertise to help procure highly favorable outcomes for today's most talented aspiring CEOs. We have the unique benefit in that not only have our founders experienced tremendous success with their own individual searches, but we also ran a successful accelerator for five years. This really enabled us to refine and hone in on the successful systems and processes needed to succeed across the entire entrepreneurship through acquisition (ETA) journey and helps us stand out as true value add partners for your search.

GTE is now completely dedicated to partnering with traditional searchers during their initial capital raise, and we also provide gap investment capital to both traditional and self-funded searchers alike.

Why searchers choose GTE

Joseph Hall
Operator, Precision Body & Service

"I would say what makes GTE so special is that the team and current operators not only experienced the search process, but the startup process of developing GTE as a firm, too. . . They saw it as a startup, as a searcher, and now as an operator—all very much different phases. Most places don’t have that luxury of having resources that have been through all three different phases."
