Midwest Growth Partners seeks to invest in companies:

  • Who are, or want to be, strategically located in the upper Midwest.
  • That have an owner who lacks an exit plan for retirement or a management team which has a plan for significant growth.
  • Whose product or service offers a defensible market position.
  • Where the core values of the management team align with the MGP mission.

Equity investments in growth oriented companies, including management buyouts, internal recapitalizations, competitive roll-ups as well as more non-traditional investing, including distressed and turnaround situations.

Most private equity firms avoid the rural marketplace. We prefer it.

Our business backgrounds and experiences owning and operating companies in the rural upper Midwest align us very well with management teams whose approach to business is very similar to ours. While grounded by Midwest values and beliefs, we strive to help each company we invest in grow to reach their full potential.

Our management team adds value to our investment portfolio by providing:

  • Industry insight
  • Senior leadership
  • Executive mentoring
  • Financial structuring expertise

Our investment principals and operating partners have been CEO's, CFO's, CTO's and COO's of privately owned companies and are able to call upon those experiences in assisting portfolio company leaders navigate the daily trials of operating a growing enterprise.
