Acquisitions and Corporate Development
Many middle-market companies considering growth through acquisition, joint-venture, or other strategic relationships lack internal corporate development expertise (or perhaps insufficient capacity).
Joseph Feldman Associates consults on a project basis, as an “outsourced VP Corporate Development”, working alongside its clients’ management teams.
Companies seeking growth through cross-border expansion face particular challenges, including:
Limited local knowledge and networks, and
Absence of in-house or in-market leadership to support opportunity evaluation, due diligence, integration planning, and related project management requirements.
JFA’s cross-border experience has helped numerous companies overcome these challenges and achieve their growth plans.
Private Equity Deal Sourcing
Joseph Feldman Associates provides deal sourcing services to private equity investors for both new platform companies and add-ons. Deal sourcing is also available to middle market operating companies responsible for their own add-ons.
Our experience and orientation come from the operating side, and we approach successful deal sourcing as, fundamentally, a relationship-driven activity… not a numbers game.
Joseph Feldman Associates has advised a range of entrepreneurial ventures, including start-ups, early-stage ventures, university-based technology development, and venture-capital investors.
Joe Feldman, JFA’s President, is currently an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
