I am a principal of a firm that aims to grow rapidly in the Tech space. We have secured a few fantastic deals and we are ready to begin the acquisitions.

However, we are facing issues in covering our initial M&A Accounting and Legal Due Diligence costs.

We are very confident of paying back the fees immediately after one acquisition completes, and hence do not want to dilute equity. I am looking at Debt/Equity financing if possible.

Would banks be able to provide initial funds for the same? Do we have to approach Venture Capital institutions? Please let me know your thoughts and experiences.
