Building a great business takes years…
Working in our families’ respective farming and cabinetry businesses in Kansas taught us that building something great happens “brick by brick” — day by day, little by little, through hard work, discipline, and integrity.
At some point, many great businesses reach an inflection point: a time when the owner wants a long-term partner who can help preserve and enrich the future of the business (and do it in the right way).
That’s where Kanbrick comes in. We built Kanbrick from the ground up to be the trusted partner for a special group of owners looking for a distinct alternative to traditional private equity.
We are long-term business builders who happen to invest…
We are a differentiated option focused on building enduring businesses for decades vs. maximizing short-term value. Our approach is differentiated by our:
Long Time Horizon
We think in decades not quarters, and strive to own businesses for the long-term vs. selling companies every 3-5 years
