: Private Equity Investment Firms
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X
It’s important to identify a private
equity investment firm whose interests match your transaction.
Some firms only work on very large deals, and many venture capital
firms only invest in technology companies and do not back management
buyouts. Fortunately, the Internet has made searching for firms
much easier, and with this list I’ve tried to provide
you with the Web addresses of the various firms. Review those
Web sites carefully before you send out any material. For each
firm listed, I have included the amount of capital and made
some annotations about its focus, which can help you initially
identify a firm that may best match your needs.
This list of firms is not by any
means a complete list. There are hundreds of firms, and if
I tried to list them all, the list would comprise the whole
book. While a majority of the firms listed have multiple
office locations, for the most part, I have included only their
primary office location, so check their Web site to see if
they have an office close to you. You’ll
be able to get detailed personal contact information from most
sites as well.
Please note that there are also a
very large group of firms backed by the Small Business Administration
called SBICs (“Small
Business Investment Companies”). You can find that list
of firms at www.sba.gov. These farms target investments in
If you are an investor and I left your firm off this
list, or an investor who would have preferred to have been left
off the list, I apologize. This list, and additional updates
and links, can also be found online at the website for the book.
