PE in Austin, TX

Who are the best funds in Austin? Would appreciate thoughts on Peak Rock, Tritium, Blue Sage, Centergate, and Presidio, as well as any other firms in the city.

Peak Rock is by far the best traditional LBO shop in Austin

Vista is a megafund, the most famous of any Austin shop by far but niche focus

Tritium is by far the best growth equity shop in Austin with Austin Ventures background

Don't know the others

Peak Rock has a tremendous amount of turnover because the senior guys are pricks. They've been able to raise several funds, but have plenty of crap in the portfolio. 

CenterGate are nice people, but struggle in auctions. I can't imagine comp is great because of how many heads there are and how small the portfolio is.

Blue Sage has a pretty good rep, but I haven't had any personal experience with them.

Can't imagine comp being above 200k at any of these shops right? Maybe Vista is like 230-250k...

Two names to add to the list:

Cotton Creek Capital
Strattam Capital - enterprise software

fellow analyst interviewed there. I think its a fairly standard LMM shop that mostly takes from solid MM IB shops like RJ/HW/WF. looks like VPs joined as ASOs, so there seems to be a career track pipeline. feels not very top heavy which could be great for WLB.
