The announcement responds to the growing popularity of independent sponsorship as an alternative investment model. The key reason for this trend is that it offers investors significant advantages over private equity funds, giving them more flexibility and control over investment decisions and eliminating the need to pay management fees on uncommitted capital.

Unlike private equity funds, where investors commit to a blind pool, independent sponsors start by identifying an acquisition target, after which it is presented to its partners to secure funding. OutFlow recognizes that in this model, decisions are made on a case-by-case basis, and the quality of inputs is a key factor for the success of the transaction.

“A laser-targeted list is the foundation to any successful marketing, sales, or growth initiative,” says Matt Currie, CEO of OutFlow. “You must know who you want to make contact with. You take control of deal flow by reaching into the marketplace.”

Precise targeting is the cornerstone of the company’s approach to deal sourcing. Once the key characteristics of the target company are identified, such as industry or size, OutFlow’s marketing experts create multichannel campaigns with the goal of building a list of highly qualified prospects. The results of the campaigns are analyzed in the process, and parameters are adjusted as necessary.

The resulting prospect list is then carefully vetted to ensure that all companies match the investment criteria and strategy, after which OutFlow contacts prospects on the client’s behalf to determine whether they are interested and secure a meeting. This process is scaled and repeated systematically, ensuring a steady stream of “hot” leads.

Unlike networking, external databases, in-house research, and other traditional sourcing methods, OutFlow’s approach is more cost-efficient and yields higher-quality leads, including exclusive, off-market opportunities. This not only allows the independent sponsor to optimize their resources, but also gives them a competitive advantage.

“Vinay and the team at OutFlow have done an outstanding job in providing us with a very regular flow of solid, high-quality leads in the last year,” a satisfied client said. “The communications strategy they utilize has proven to be very effective with our target prospect base and we look forward to continuing our partnership with them.”
