The Alternative Path to Entrepreneurship

BETA-i was created with one goal in mind: to help Black searchers and CEOs succeed!

Do you have the inner desire and persistence to become an entrepreneurial leader but don’t want the risk of starting a business from scratch? No worries – there is an alternative path.

Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition (ETA) allows aspiring entrepreneurs to search for, acquire, operate, grow, and lead an established business. If you have the motivation and determination to acquire and run an established business, we’re designed for you!  Become part of the new generation of Black entrepreneurs.

We provide our searchers and CEOs with incomparable advising, coaching, and support. You will work with other brilliant entrepreneurs and have access to a team of professionals and advisors dedicated to your success.  Our capital partners, together with selected investment funds, provide the equity investment that is needed and is committed to your success.

Innovatively Meeting The Needs of Black Searchers


  •  Through cultural sensitivity and recognitions
  • Embracing the diaspora of African-descent
  • Understanding the robust opportunities in Black international commerce
  • Providing optional Islamic finance structures 





BETA-i welcomes a new group of searchers at select intervals during the year. We are actively seeking future CEOs to join our inaugural 2021 cohort!


We target and primarily work with African-Canadian searchers from a wide variety of professional and educational backgrounds. They all share the drive and determination to be successful CEOs.


BETA-i 2021 cohort will soon become  CEOs, leading businesses they bought.  We can’t wait to highlight their accomplishment here.
