Our Story


KCB Private Equity is a long-term, control investor in growing small to medium sized businesses.

We offer sellers significant liquidity today while providing long-term continuity to their businesses. This philosophy allows KCB to build strong relationships with management and nurture solid growing portfolio companies without the pressures of a short exit time frame.
