Carousel Capital is a private equity investment firm that invests in companies headquartered in the Southeastern United States. This region produces the most GDP, has the most net private sector job growth and the largest population of any geographic region in the nation. In addition, the Southeast accounts for 28% of all U.S. private companies, 19% of all U.S. mergers and acquisitions and six of the top ten states ranked by business climate in the United States. The Southeast also ranks as the best region in the United States for the quality of the workforce, cost of doing business and cost of living. In fact, the Southeast would represent the third largest economy in the world if ranked against all other countries by GDP. Despite the opportunities that exist within this region, only 2% of U.S. private equity capital raised has been domiciled in the Southeast (1).
Since its founding in 1996, Carousel Capital has earned a reputation with both investors and business owners for successful investing within the Southeast. Carousel’s unparalleled CEO investor network, direct deal sourcing capabilities, experienced investment team and successful investment track record uniquely position the firm to be the partner of choice for small buyout opportunities within the Southeast.
