Wolfgang is the Managing Partner and Co-Founder of DynEvolve Capital. He has worked in the asset-backed growth equity space for the last 12 years, having been a principal at two bespoke firms in Austin. His expertise over several funds and direct-deals has been in real estate, oil & gas, and federally-chartered CFI banking. In that time, Wolfgang has spearheaded deal flow, crafted fund/deal sponsorship economics, capital markets/fundraising, operational group efficiencies, and maximized LP exits. His overarching theme throughout the investment life-cycle is to de-risk deals from start to finish, from people to assets, from markets to governments. Prior to this, Wolfgang owned a successful wealth management practice under the American Express/Ameriprise franchise umbrella. There, he fostered multi-generational investment portfolios into the next phase of family office platforms.
Mr. Niedert is also an Adjunct Lecturer in upper-division finance at the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas, from which he holds two degrees. Wolfgang serves as an Executive Sec. of the Board of Directors of the Texas Exes (UT-Austin alumni association) where he also served on the I.C. of its nation-leading endowment. Statewide in Texas, Wolfgang is the inaugural President of the Aguila Alliance, an initiative between the Texas and the government of Mexico where he promotes housing and banking opportunities for the Mexican-American population in Texas primary/secondary markets. To help direct resources and regulatory change to affordable housing and multi-family properties, he has served under three Austin City Councils as the Bond Oversight Commissioner. He is a current or prior Board of Directors member of the Texas Book Festival, U.S. Global Leadership Coalition, ClubCorp Company, the UT System Chancellor’s Executive Committee, the Ransom Center for the Humanities, the LBJ School of Public Affairs-Strauss Center, and the Austin Chamber of Commerce-Economic Development Council. This has afforded Wolfgang a proprietary network of deep political connectivity, access to capital, and regulatory foresight.
