TMT/Industrial Tech-Focused MM PE Firms
I'm halfway through my third year at my current fund. Received top marks during my annual and have a clear path to a promotion, but I know it is not a place I want to be long-term due to their investment style, industries of focus, etc. It was a great place to land as my first role in PE. After 2.5 years, however, I have a much better grasp on what I'm looking for long-term. I just let headhunters know that I'm searching, but wanted to see if the WSO community could point me towards any interesting firms that I should keep top of mind or try to network into.
I narrowed down what I'm looking for in my next shop. The list includes:
- Industry focus on technology (NOT generalists)
- Middle-market focus (i.e., current fund size of ~$400M roughly)
- Desire to grow the fund (i.e., target fund size of close to $1B)
- Growth equity / buy-outs
