GROWTH EQUITY

Investing for Family Offices and Individuals

 

ABOUT

The K Funds are private partnerships of committed capital supported by families and other private investors. We invest equity capital in growth companies across a range of promising industries and stages of company maturity. We also selectively invest in other private equity funds that share our objectives, possess specific domain expertise, and offer opportunities for collaboration.

​We are more than just a private equity fund — we are a private investment ecosystem of families, entrepreneurs, and other private investors who share ideas, access, and expertise.

​The K Funds are diversified portfolios of growth companies and are the culmination of the best opportunities from our private investment ecosystem.

We are currently investing out of The K Fund III, LP, and continuing our strategy of offering co-investment opportunities to our investors.
