Helping Deal Makers Close More Deals

Origination Services

M&A Research Support

M&A Research Projects and Ongoing Analyst Support.

We help small and mid-sized M&A firms prepare transactions to go to market. Our full-time, US-based M&A analyst team can replace or supplement your internal M&A analyst team on a project or semi annual commitment basis.

Client Testimonials

A client had tried, without success, to make an acquisition in the government contracting space, and retained us to assist with the task. With CAPTARGET as an essential partner on our team, in 90 days we had identified, contacted, and introduced the client to four well-screened acquisition prospects. The client loved us, and it’s led to new business. I recommend the team at CAPTARGET without hesitation as partners who can quickly scale buy-side efforts from initial search through LOI.

Client Testimonials

I know if I can get connected directly to an entrepreneur who is considering selling, my 20 years of running my own companies lets me speak their language. Captarget does a great job of initiating those conversations.

Message From Our Founder

Gabe Galvez, CEO & Founder

Having built, sold and bought businesses I know how hard the deal making process can be. Too often private equity and M&A professionals are tasked with an overwhelming process of sourcing analyzing and managing processes as a means to an end.
We have made it our mission to become experts in areas of practice that many groups have trouble accomplishing with their limited time and resources.  It is our goal to help deal makers find the highest and best use of their time, leaving the rest to us.
