You could try reaching out to boutiques and private placement groups of middle market investment banks. I also know there are services that match buyers and sellers but charge a monthly subscription fee (as opposed to success fee of banks). If you are just starting out and nobody has prior investing experience (advisory only), I'd suggest investing in a PE fund with a strategy/sector focus you are interested in and with lots of co-invest opportunities. This will allow you to get exposure to some good deal flow and learn from the experience of the fund. Other option could be a pledge fund. Other than that going to conferences and building a network is probably the best way to go. Good luck!
