Nobody Understands Business Development Like We Do. Period. ™

Established in 2010 by Mark Marxer and Brian Leftwich, MMX has grown into a vast network of premier managers, clients focused on partnerships, and strategic alliances. Our team, with a collective experience of over 145 years, specializes in constructing alternative investment businesses and securing capital from institutional investors. On average, MMX partners bring more than 20 years of experience in diverse capital raising environments and maintain enduring relationships with top institutions, institutional investment consultants, family offices, and wealth managers across North America. Our leadership team, comprising four partners, is spread across Florida, New York, Minnesota, Tennessee, and Texas, each bringing extensive experience in capital raising and business development.

Over the past decade, MMX has collaborated with a wide array of high-caliber, industry-leading managers. We prioritize personal, one-on-one engagement with our esteemed investor relationships, eschewing mass marketing tactics to assist our clients in strategically growing their businesses and securing capital from the right investors. Our boutique approach to client service is a valuable asset in the capital raising and business consulting landscape. To ensure optimal performance, it is crucial that MMX and our managers operate in unison, a key factor in aligning interests for the long-term success of a partnership.

By collaborating with MMX, managers of alternative investments gain access to our wealth of experience, market insights, and extensive reach within the institutional investor community.

What sets MMX apart is our customized approach to business development and capital raising. We focus on collaboration, integration, and a specialized strategy for sustainable growth, tailored to each client’s unique needs. Our network, in turn, greatly appreciates the chance to assess, engage with, and grow alongside the top-tier franchises we are helping to build.

MMX’s approach to business building and advisory services stands apart from conventional advisor/fundraising partner options or capital introduction groups you may have encountered. We’ve discovered that the traditional advisor approach may not correlate as strongly with capital raising success as anticipated. This is due to the dynamic, rather than linear, nature of fundraising processes.

Achieving success entails more than just extensive market coverage, breadth, geography, and a high number of meetings. Similar to many investment strategies, effective fundraising is a blend of both bottom-up and top-down approaches, working in tandem to produce the most favorable outcome.

Each firm, fund, team, structure, and investment strategy is unique, initially attracting the attention and interest of a select group of investors. However, the key lies in how effectively a manager presents their strategy, ensuring that investors and clients comprehend the long-term value proposition. Thus, identifying interested investors or partners is less crucial than understanding their decision-making process and thoughts on the prepared materials and preliminary discussions.

A partnership with MMX equips you to assess and prepare for these dialogues, taking into account the anticipated environment and current market interest.
