What deal criteria should I prioritize? Smaller deals to increase # of potential LOIs?

Some context/facts:

  • Started the search full-time in March (5 months ago)
  • I've signed nearly 50 NDAs, 11 Promising deals, and submitted 2 LOIs
  • I am not from the US, so the SBA path is complex for me (i.e., I am focusing on deals with $2-5M EBITDA and raising Mezz + Equity from Investors)
  • I can self-fund until April 2024, so I would have to find, negotiate and sign an LOI by November###-###-#### months from now)
