BUSINESS BUILDER FAQs
Kanbrick is a long-term investment partnership that buys, builds, and grows great businesses for the long-term. Kanbrick provides midsize companies a long-term alternative to traditional private equity.
Co-Founders Tracy Britt Cool and Brian Humphrey are both investors and operators who are passionate about empowering people and organizations to reach their full potential.
The Business Builder event is a Kanbrick Community event and opportunity to bring together like-minded business builders who want to learn, share, and build long term relationships. We put on this event because we believe that learning compounds and that we are all stronger in sharing from our common successes, failures, and general learning. We love sharing our experience and insights from working across and in dozens of companies, and connecting other great leaders. We also think its fun to meet interesting people who are building and growing world class companies.
The Kanbrick Community is an exclusive, invitation-only community of CEOs, owners, and executives who are leading high quality businesses. These leaders are focused on continuous improvement, building strong companies, and coming together to share best practices and learnings in a low-ego environment. The Kanbrick Community has access to Kanbrick’s programming, events, and content, where we seek to openly share our lessons and learnings from running companies, as well as access to other leaders who are part of the Kanbrick Community.
We love meeting owners, executives, and CEOs whenever given the chance and our Kanbrick Community events ensure that we regularly meet interesting leaders, build meaningful relationships, and learn about a variety of industries. The event also allows us to share aspects of our Kanbrick Business System and see how these learnings and experiences can add value to mid-size companies.
Lastly, we are guided by our purpose of empowering people and organizations to reach their full potential and the Community is an extension of our approach to building a strong foundation, empowering people, and driving growth.
The event will offer a mix of larger group sessions with dynamic speakers, customized and tailored breakout sessions, panel discussions, and plenty of networking.
