Welcome to OriginateMoreDeals.com
For years I thought about creating a website that documents the best practices that middle market deal professionals use to generate superior deal flow. And finally, at the beginning of 2017, I took the leap and started OriginateMoreDeals.com.
My goal is to provide concise and meaningful content that will make you a better originator of investment opportunities that fit your areas of interest. The content I will provide comes from my personal experience and know-how that has been shared with me by many peers in the industry.
A short background on me. I’ve spent almost 20 years working with companies in the lower middle market. Most of these companies generate between $5mm and $200mm in revenue and are owned by families, our fund, or other private equity firms. No company I work with is the same which means every investment opportunity provides a unique puzzle to solve.
I started my career working on the investment execution side and made the full-time leap to the business development side when I joined Saratoga Investment Corp in 2012. At Saratoga I was given the opportunity to build the business development function from scratch. I hope to share many stories of what works and what doesn’t so that you too can build a consistent flow of investment opportunities.
