Customized Private Equity for Successful Business Owners.

Since 2004

Carousel Capital has not made a CEO change in any platform investment made since 2004 (other than a CEO's planned retirement).

We’re entrepreneurs too.

Like you, we understand what it takes to lead a successful organization. This is the experience we bring to any partnership. Our leadership has been working together for nearly 25 years and remains actively engaged in every partnership we strike. With Carousel Capital, you will have a partnership with the team that has a had a front row seat across over 40 investments.

We’d love to do something great together.
