CGE has focused on manufacturing and technology since our founding. We look for opportunities to build and grow sustainable, successful businesses in our target markets. CGE seeks companies that research and develop proprietary technology solutions and either license them to their customers or leverage them internally to create a technology-enabled service. This includes companies that develop and market software, software as a service, and technology-enabled business, and information services. We believe there are various elements to the manufacturing and technology business model that can create a differentiated, scalable, and highly profitable business. Identifying specific companies that can be transformed through the implementation of operational best practices and turned into predictable, high cash flow businesses is key to CGE’s selection. While our portfolio companies need not fit a specific profile, many of our prospective investments have some common characteristics.
