Mno-Bmadsen is a non-gaming investment enterprise and wholly-owned instrumentality of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi. We invest some of the treasury from the Pokagon gaming enterprise and returns generated by Mno-Bmadsen investments. We are focused on acquiring good investments and good companies and finding ways to add value and to help them grow through our tribal strength, status, and strategic expertise.
