Norwest Equity Partners

Investing in middle market companies since 1961.

Our Mission

As an investment firm with global presence and Midwest roots, our mission is to invest capital and build businesses that create long-term value. Since 1961, we have raised over $5 billion of capital, delivered quality investments, and generated exceptional returns.

Our portfolio companies have ready access to the experience and resources they need to provide enduring products and services, strengthen the economy, and support their communities.

This is a shared mission among our firm and portfolio companies.


Resourceful. Approachable. Versatile.

"Our company had a great partnership with NEP. They provided us with investment capital, but they more importantly added great value and resources as we thought through strategic issues. Our partnership led to a successful exit to a strategic acquirer."
