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

icon1

Business Builder Mindset

We’ve led businesses as CEO and CFO, understand the challenges (and joys) of running a business, and know great companies aren’t built in spreadsheets

Focus on People & Culture

We have lived in a special culture and are driven by our purpose of empowering people and organizations to reach their full potential

Kanbrick awakened our business in ways that I did not realize were possible in such a short amount of time. After 17 years of being the Founder and Owner of Thirty-One Gifts, we had opportunities that had become difficult to see working so closely to the business. Kanbrick helped us simplify, prioritize, and focus on the core of our business. They were able to come along side of our team to quickly drive necessary change, efficiently help us simplify, and get focused on what we need to move into our next season of opportunity.
