More Deals. Less Fees.

Acquiring middle market businesses is more competitive than ever. Increases in valuations, driven by countless new entries into the space and an abundance of capital require deal makers to keep sourcing and related costs low. Our elimination of finders fees and high price retainers allow our clients to reduce the cost of sourcing and closing a deal by as much as 5% of transaction value.
Client Testimonials

We engaged and CAPTARGET delivered! Our latest acquisition sourced directly by the CAPTARGET team cost us less than 80% of our usual sourcing fees. Let’s do it again!

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.

Our Process

We offer a scalable, low cost sourcing service that allows buyers of all sizes to lever the tools and strategies of industry leaders to source more middle market opportunities. Our process has been refined by working with some of the largest and most productive professional acquirers of companies in the marketplace.

You no longer have to depend on the deal flow of a single software platform, manage hundreds of broker relationships or dig through hundreds of communications just to find a lead. CAPTARGET origination takes a blended approach to sourcing by combining a direct-to-business-owner sourcing strategy with a broader M&A intermediary sourced strategy.

This ensures you see more deals. Think of CAPTARGET Origination as a supercharger to an existing origination effort or an alternative to building out an internal origination team.

Set Up

We set up an alias email account from your company to keep the communication insulated as to not disrupt your normal workflow. We represent ourselves as an extension of your team, which maximizes response rates and protects opportunity ownership.


Each month your analyst helps source well-fitting targets based on your acquisition criteria. We are known for having the most accurate contact information in the industry due to our rigorous hand testing process, ensuring that your firm will reach more quality prospects more often.

Content Creation

Letting data drive our content creation process results in higher response rates. Our team develops custom messaging for each client specific to your search mandate with a focus on educating your acquisition universe on your key differentiator as a buyer.


We manage all outbound communication and follow-ups. As a one-to-one email sender we are not considered spam and generally produce higher deliverability and response rates than other service providers. Phone follow ups and calling available for an additional cost.

Follow up & Tracking

Your analyst monitors and improves your campaign in real time to ensure no opportunities are missed. With robust analytics and tracking capabilities, we provide visibility throughout the entire process. It is our end goal to set up scheduled calls between you and qualified target for you to further vet.
