Norwest as a firm. Change first comes from within. We’re transforming our policies and developing best practices. We’re striving to hire investment and portfolio services team members from underrepresented groups. And we’re committing ourselves to continual improvement.
Norwest as an investor. Working to set a higher standard, we seek to partner with founders that share our values and embrace responsible business practices.
Norwest as a guide. The first step toward progress is education. For us, that means getting the conversation going, providing our companies the inspiration and support they need at every stage.

They participated in a $12 million Series A funding round for Ediphi to expand the team and enhance cloud-based solutions, highlighting their active role in fostering portfolio growth.

Very Good Beauty Funder Fit, investments in hardcore skincare and body care brands backed by science, even if beauty is not their core sector preference. Haircare, makeup brands backed by science can pitch as non-conflict to portfolio and skincare & wellness brands can pitch if they can compliment the current investments for better negotiation with market players like influencers, retailers, etc.
