The Chicago Private Equity Firm That Values Collaboration

At New Harbor Capital, we forge lasting partnerships that transform businesses and unlock untapped potential.

Specializing in lower middle-market private equity, our team works in close collaboration with founders of growth-oriented companies who see their potential but are hesitant to go it alone — providing the camaraderie, expertise and resources to tackle any challenge together.

New Harbor Capital was founded on the premise that exceptional ideas are fostered through a culture of mutual respect, coupled with a methodical, research-driven approach. We seek to create a culture of partnership that we believe sets us apart from other private equity firms.

We believe a growth-oriented mindset is a successful mindset — but only if that growth is deliberate and sustainable. We seek to pair the tenacity of an entrepreneurial focus with the sophistication of large-firm experience to make big moves that make sense for your business. Innovation and collaboration excite us, inspire us and drive us to build mutually successful partnerships.

Why? Because your success is our success.

Investment Success Stories

“Every once in a very long while, a business leader has the opportunity to combine a brief moment of intuition with years of experience, business knowledge, psychology, strategy and negotiating skill. That moment is the difference between dumb luck and fabulous opportunity. In the fifth year of our partnership, New Harbor seized such a moment and I was the benefactor.

I would recommend New Harbor to a business partner without any hesitation. They stand by their promises of being growth-focused and meeting the goals of an entrepreneur or business partner. If a company is just looking to cash out, then New Harbor probably isn’t a fit. But if the growth of their company, people and their business goals are their main objectives, then New Harbor is the way to go!”
