Midwest Investment Ventures (MIV) is a private investment company that provides private equity and mezzanine debt to small and medium-sized companies in a variety of industries throughout the United States. MIVís investment objective is to achieve long-term capital appreciation in the value of our investments and to provide current income primarily from interest, dividends and fees paid by our portfolio companies.
Our professionals have extensive experience in identifying, evaluating, selecting, negotiating and closing investments in privately held companies. Since our inception, we have established a significant track record in successfully building businesses.
MIVís investment philosophy is to partner with entrepreneurs and management teams that are committed to creating major enterprises via investments in their organizations. Our equity investments in these entities are structured to yield long-term capital appreciation for our shareholders and for these individuals. Our mezzanine investments in these organizations generate return from both current income in the form of a fixed rate of interest and capital appreciation through the ownership of warrants for the issuing company's stock.
MIV is an active financial partner which helps build successful businesses by providing expertise in strategic planning, corporate finance, operational management, manufacturing and marketing in addition to our financial resources.
