About Us

Platte River Equity was founded in 2006 with the mission to invest in middle market companies in targeted sectors and help them achieve transformational growth. Platte River’s principals have been CEOs, Presidents, board members and investors in numerous successful companies. We leverage this experience to be a value-added partner to each of our portfolio companies.

We look for leading niche businesses where we can partner with management teams to develop growth strategies such as launching new products, entering new markets, offering additional services, and increasing sales and marketing efforts. We target companies with revenues generally ranging from $20 million to $250 million and are currently investing out of our third fund. Platte River manages in excess of $700 million across its three funds. In each of our funds, the principals of Platte River have been the largest collective investor – directly aligning our interests with those of our investors and our management partners.

“We were a family-owned company for more than 40 years, and despite the change in ownership, Platte River partnered with us and became part of our family.”
