Cole Global Enterprise was established in 2000 to provide process improvement and software consulting solutions to medium and large market companies. Armed with over twenty years of manufacturing and technology consulting experience we begin acquiring tech and manufacturing companies in 2013 to increase their overall market value. CGE eschewed traditional investment strategies of spreading risk across sectors and decided instead to focus exclusively on our experience with manufacturing and technology solutions. Today, we are an investment firm with an operational arm, CGE Consulting Group. CGE manages a series of private equity and credit funds. In each case, these funds are generally focused on leveraging the firm’s substantial knowledge, experience, and intellectual capital in the manufacturing and technology sectors.

CGE brings engineering-like process, focus, and discipline to the value creation process. We have created a scalable model by developing best practices that help improve a company’s efficiency and profitability and enhance its growth opportunities. Best practices are created by and for CGE’s management teams, and touch on all aspects of growth and operational strategies, and seek to capture and share collective learnings across the CGE ecosystem.
