THE CARLYLE GROUP
CETP (Carlyle Europe Technology Partners) is managed by subsidiaries of the Carlyle Group, which is one of the largest and most experienced global private equity companies. CETP concentrates on investing in European companies, particularly in the technology, media and telecommunications sectors. The fund also focuses on buyouts in which potential portfolio companies can bear debt capitalisation, and on investing equity capital in companies with existing income flows, whether or not these are profitable (“later stage venture”). Quest for Growth has co-invested in a large number of CETP’s portfolio businesses via Carlyle Europe Technology Partners Co-investment, LP.
