Best software investors in NY?

About to start as a first year at one of the EBs. I've been interested in software for a while but not sure I care enough to move to SF after banking (I'm from the city suburbs, gf and all my HS/college friends will be in NY). 

Not sure if I want to do PE or late-stage GE yet (but I don't want to go directly to public markets). Anyone have insight into the better opportunities to cover software in NY? 

Thank you in advance.

Thanks. Heard they're very sourcing heavy though, which I'm not sure how to feel about.

I work for the latter and dig our team in NYC - they are some of the awesomest, most fun bunch. Admittedly we're sort of newcomers in the US though (we were started in Europe).

Chickpotpie, what's your opinion? Comment below:

There are a handful of solid software / tech focused buyout firms in nyc as well as some outpost offices

nyc based: Siris, Veritas, oceansound, HG (sorta tho ~half in SF), CVC (~half SF), EQT (lots of software in portfolio), CD&R has a tech team now based in nyc, WCAS (a little tech with SF outpost), apax has a tech team, Warburg has a tech team split nyc / sf

nyc outpost: SLP, Sumeru, Providence, etc 

for growth there are a lot more options - however, overall if you really want to be in tech long term you should consider the Bay Area (a bunch of firms in Boston too)

Just to comment - I think Siris leans more value than growth. OP didn't rule out value but worth noting that investing style / portfolio there is different from most others on that list
