Editor’s note: Each business day, Local Tech Wire features a profile of a venture capital or investment firm. Matthew Burns, Daniel Pearson and Worth Civils compiled the series. From its Alabama roots, Southeastern Technology Fund expanded into Atlanta two years ago and has made a steady string of investments in the market since then.

Its portfolio now includes Novient, Alogent, Seventh Wave Technology, Fitability Systems and SPI Dynamics.

With $100 million under management in two funds, Southeastern Technology focuses exclusively on the Internet, information technology and communications investments. Initial investments are usually in the range of $2 million to $5 million, with up to $15 million available through follow-on funding rounds.

The firm’s limited partners include founders and executives of Internet, IT and communications companies, who can lend strategic, operational, financial, and technology expertise to portfolio companies. Southeastern Technology looks for companies with aggressive and innovative managers with a vested interest in expansion and a distinctive product or service and that provide the firm with the ability to exit the company in three to five years through a public stock offering, recapitalization, corporate sale, management buyout or put or redemption rights for the firm.
