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 origination model eliminates high priced retainers and success fee payments all while giving you access to more deals.

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 acquisition opportunities. Our process has been refined by working with some of the largest and most productive professional acquirers in the middle market.

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 can be used to source direct-to-business-owner opportunities and/or to cover the broader M&A intermediary market.

Think of CAPTARGET Origination as a supercharger to an existing origination effort or an alternative to building out an internal origination team, all without any long term commitments or success fee payments.
