Looking to invest - not getting anywhere

Some feedback please. We've applied for and been approved for an E2 Visa subject to finding a suitable business to either purchase outright or as a partial 50% investment. Currently we invest in several enterprises (outside of the US) who require funds either for expansion, upgrading existing facilities, etc. We prefer to adopt a 'hands off' approach as feel the existing owners are normally best placed to manage the business overall.

The problem we are finding is getting a response from any of the business brokers. We have funds available and are effectively ready to go. In more than a couple of occasions we have signed the necessary NDA's and then the trail goes cold. Chaser e-mails seem to achieve nothing.

So are we wasting out time dealing with professionals, or trying to. Should we adopt a different approach.

Any input appreciated - thanks in advance
