charlotte NC PE firms

I am currently pursuing my mba and would like to break into PE upon graduation. I do not have PE or banking experience so I was wanting to do an "internship" or some work on the side at the very least over the next 1.5 years to gain relevant experience. Does anyone work for a PE firm in charlotte that could use some help or know of any firms that I can contact? I am going to start cold calling but wanted to check here first.

God of Wine:
Is Charlotte where you are located or just a big city near-by? My only PE contact in NC is in Asheville, NC. (Which is like a 2 hour drive from Charlotte)

I live in Charlotte.

Thanks for all the replies and info.

Great link. As a side not Wachovia Capital Partners is now Pamlico (they did a spin out). Falfurias isn't on the list but was mentioned above.

Between the link that was posted and the ones that have been listed I think most have been covered. Best of luck.

What is your background? As a recent MBA grad I can tell you that breaking into PE without prior banking or investment experience is going to be very tough. Your best bet is to bring some "operational" expertise to the table and sell yourself as someone that can help improve their portfolio companies. On the bright side, firms are typically willing to bring in MBA students as free help so you should be able to find a place that will help you gain experience while in b-school.
