VENTURE
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
  • INVESTMENT STAGE
    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.
  • INVESTMENT SIZE
    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.
HOW WE HELP
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.
