Norwest invests in early- to late-stage companies across a wide range of sectors, with a focus on
consumer, enterprise, and healthcare. We offer a deep network of connections, operating
experience, and a wide range of impactful services to help CEOs and founders advance on their
journey. We make venture investments in the U.S., India, and Israel.
AT A GLANCE
We invest in early-stage venture projects with world-class technologies and entrepreneurs; later stage companies with existing customers, strong sales and top tier management and co-investors.
For early stage companies with strong growth potential, our general goal is to invest between $10 million and $15 million in each company over time. We sometimes begin with a smaller amount (as little as $1 million to $5 million), and we have the ability to invest as much as $25 million to $30 million.
CAPITAL UNDER MANAGEMENT
We manage approximately $9.5 billion of capital (current fund $2 billion). Our firm has funded more than 600 companies since inception and we currently have more than 150 active portfolio companies globally.
We offer entrepreneurs a broad range of services to help them build their businesses at every stage of growth. We realize that one size does not fit all when it comes to today’s operational challenges. We aim to add value where you need it most. Our seasoned team can assist you with as-needed, customizable services to help you tackle what’s next. Think of us as an à la carte menu of services. All of what you need and none of what you don’t.
I always feel like Norwest is in our court and will do whatever it takes to make sure that our company succeeds.

Norwest is more than an just an investor, they are family. They act, behave, and support you for the long run. Their focus is facilitating an environment that allows a CEO to perform and they bring a wealth of experience that enables a CEO to make judicious decisions.
SUJAI HAJELA - CEO & Co-FOUNDER, MIST SYSTEMS
The Norwest team starts and ends every conversation by asking how they can be helpful; and they mean it. Whether providing strategic introductions, speaking to key recruits or offering valuable HR advice, I can always count on Norwest to deliver. Being a Norwest portfolio company means something and I believe it provides Manta with an advantage over the competition.
JOHN SWANCIGER, CEO - MANTA
We originally met with Norwest when I was trying to raise money to purchase RetailMeNot.com. It wasn’t a small acquisition (>$100M) and it was in an industry that is not well known, with few comps and fewer big successes. Jeff Crowe and Josh Goldman instantly saw what we were trying to do and were incredibly supportive from the start. Both joined our board and have been terrific directors and advisors to our executives.
