An Outsourced Business Development Team

Axial’s professional services team works directly with you, acting as an extension of your business development team. We did a study with 150 investment firms and discovered that working with an Axial relationship manager increased deal flow by an average of 32%.

  • Monthly business development consulting sessions
  • Quarterly refinement of buy-side and sell-side projects
  • Advocate on your behalf, prioritizing your firm for new opportunities
  • Assistance with obtaining responses from other members
  • Research, preparation and meeting coordination before events.

Advanced Product Features

Axial’s advanced search and messaging tools were created to arm business development professionals with the tools they need to efficiently conduct outbound outreach to a targeted lower middle market audience.


Axial’s Advanced Search functionality allows you to filter over 11,000 companies by firm type, geography, industry of focus and size.


Use advanced filters to build a custom list of companies, individuals or past transactions. Unlike databases, data on Axial is populated firsthand by the users themselves and updated frequently, rather than scraped from the internet. 


Access company profiles to learn more about the team members, industries of expertise, past transactions and contact information. 

Best-In-Class Private Events

Axial events are rated as some of the most productive networking events for middle market deal professionals in the industry. Through national, regional, and industry-specific events, we focus on having a calculated ratio of buyers, capital providers, intermediaries and companies, while curating meetings between attendees beforehand.

The statistics speak for themselves. Here are some numbers from our one-day Chicago event held in July.

  • 750+ meetings held among 125 attendees
  • 55% sell-side attendees, 45% buyside
  • 160+ active deals in the room
  • Check sizes ranging from $100K-$500M
  • Average company size of $23M

The ROI of Professional Services

6 members reflect on Axial PRO

"The network, while valuable in itself, is not just the deal, it's the relationship and introduction to the person on the other side of the deal, which may result to 3 or 5 or 10 deals over the next year or two. A large contributor to our success is the relationship introduction and support that we receive through Axial's services team. We don't know everyone, and Axial's team is a great resource to help make those connections."

Add a team member and Axial advocate

Your professional services consultant acts as your advocate on the ground for support whenever you need it, helping you conduct research to prepare for events, and arming you with proprietary Axial data to help you target the most relevant new relationships.

At Axial Concord, I had over 15 one-on-one meetings selected and set up for me by my consultant. It was the most productive event I have ever been to. We got multiple actionable leads, one of which has already closed and another is expected to close soon.
