Master the ‘Moneyball’ of Business: Unveiling Acquisition Entrepreneurship with Walker Deibel

In this high-energy episode, Jake Stenziano and Gino Barbaro invite best-selling author and seasoned entrepreneur Walker Deibel onto the show. Walker, who is the creator of Acquisition Lab, has an impressive background in acquisition entrepreneurship, amassing over 16.5 million in revenue since 2006.

Join us as we dive into Walker’s journey from the Olin School of Business to becoming an acquisition entrepreneur. He shares some hard-earned wisdom about the high failure rate of startups, the challenges of scaling a business, and the statistical truths of entrepreneurship.

We also discuss the concept of acquisition entrepreneurship and how it contrasts with typical startup culture. Walker dives into how acquisition is just as important and effective as innovation and explains why buying businesses is the “moneyball of entrepreneurship”.

Gino and Jake share insights from their experiences in the multifamily industry, discussing market cycles, cost of capital, and how they’ve managed to continue growing despite the frothy market of the past few years. We also touch upon the fascinating idea of buying for the future while paying for the past.

Whether you’re a startup entrepreneur or an established business owner, this episode is filled with priceless advice and perspectives that can help you understand the world of business from different angles. Watch this episode to get a deep dive into the world of acquisition entrepreneurship, business valuations, and much more!
