finding inverses of functions

Hello,  I am trying to get Mathematica to find the inverse of:

y = 3x^3 + 2e^(2x)  (which I know is invertible)

InverseFunction only seems to give inverses of built-ins, like Sine.

I tried: 

Solve[ y == 3x^3 + 2e^(2x), x ] but get a message that Solve does not have methods suitable.  (Solve works for simpler functions, however.)

Any ideas?  Thanks.
