New PE firm Niobrara launches with focus on tech ecosystem

Niobrara Capital Partners, a New York-based middle market private equity firm focused on tech and tech-enabled services companies operating in North America, has launched.

The firm has an initial team of approximately fifteen professionals and will seek to invest in companies benefitting from mega trends in the evolving technology landscape that Niobrara believes will drive significant economic transformation across all industries and disrupt existing business models, creating opportunities for first and second derivative participants to capture new growth.

Niobrara is led by managing partner Chip Schorr, who has completed over 30 platform investments and 100 acquisitions in software, fintech, IT services, semiconductors and cloud services, according to a press statement.

Schorr is joined by Todd Bradley, a former operating partner at One Equity Partners with experience leading companies including Tibco and Hewlett-Packard, as well as former US Secretary of State and engineer Mike Pompeo.

Niobrara recently announced its first transaction, a $175m control equity investment in Polar Semiconductor.
