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.

“From all aspects, NEP was a great partner for our family-owned company. In addition to their capital helping to accelerate our growth, NEP provided investment expertise, operational insights, and broad and deep perspective in the logistics and distribution sector. Joining the NEP family of portfolio companies was a natural fit for Lindstrom as we transitioned to our first private equity partner.”
