Midwest Growth Partners Fund

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack has encouraged financial institutions to make equity capital available to rural America. CoBank is helping to meet that mandate through an innovative partnership with Central Iowa Power Cooperative to form Midwest Growth Partners.

Midwest Growth Partners is a $41 million private equity fund seeking investment opportunities in growth-oriented companies located in upper Midwest communities. The fund provides succession planning liquidity for retiring business owners or growth capital for established businesses seeking to expand. The goal is to strengthen the economic fabric of Midwestern communities.

CoBank participates in the fund as a limited partner. For more information about Midwest Growth Partners, current projects and how to apply for funding, please contact Mike Taylor, managing partner at Midwest Growth Partners.
