How This Company Fits our Worldview

Norwest has a long-held interest in compliance-driven SaaS solutions as evidenced our investment Avetta, along with Cority, Diligent and Galvanize. We appreciate the legal and financial drivers of compliance efforts, and we believe in the goals behind compliance targets, including worker safety, environmental protection and responsible financial management.
