Hey guys - I wanted to try and get a list of some reputable buyout shops (not growth equity) that participate in internet/software buyouts. I know that the majority of these are located in San Francisco/Palo Alto/Menlo Park. However, there are a few such as Siris Capital (web.com buyout) that are located in NY. Are there any other upper middle market funds like Siris that you know of? Are there any megafunds that have their TMT buyout group in New York or are they also all in San Francisco/Palo Alto areas?
I am an incoming TMT IB analyst at a bulge bracket in San Francisco. I enjoy covering the technology sector but think I would fit in better in New York, which is why I am thinking about recruiting there for PE. I wouldn't mind being at a fund that covers other sectors in addition to technology. I just don't want to abandon the TMT space altogether after spending two years covering it in IB. Let me know. Thanks everyone.
