North Dakota Growth Fund Adds Two Investments

Investments Now at $22.5 Million

50 South Capital Advisors, LLC, the general partner of the recently-formed North Dakota Growth Fund, is pleased to announce the fund’s most recent investments: LongWater Opportunities, a leading lower middle market private equity firm with offices in Fargo as well as Dallas, Texas; and Homegrown Capital, an early stage venture capital firm focused on disruptive technology companies in the Northern Plains. Homegrown Capital also has an office in Fargo, in addition to offices in Brookings and Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Founded in 2009, LongWater Opportunities targets control equity investments in family-owned and operated U.S.-based manufacturing companies. The firm is centered on aligning interests with owners and investing long-term capital to build American manufacturing businesses. It seeks opportunities to partner with founding families and owner-operators of differentiated companies with compelling growth prospects that are looking for hands-on support as well as capital to fund organic growth initiatives and add-on acquisitions.

Homegrown Capital, which was founded in 2021, is focused on serving the needs of early stage founders in undercapitalized markets of the Northern Plains. The firm is looking to invest in companies that demonstrate strong scalability, and particularly focuses on the business-to-business software, agriculture technology and financial technology sectors.

50 South Capital is a leading alternatives investment firm and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Northern Trust, a leading, global financial services firm.

“The teams at LongWater and Homegrown have a track record of supporting companies that have a positive impact on employees, shareholders and communities,” said 50 South Capital Director Kodee Furst. “We are thrilled to be able to bring additional types of capital to North Dakota through the mentorship and experience of these fund managers.”

LongWater Opportunities and Homegrown Capital are 50 South Capital’s second and third investments out of the North Dakota Growth Fund, which has invested $22.5 million to date.
