When we started Kian, our vision was to create a firm that took the time to build relationships based on trust, transparency and relationships with every founder and entrepreneur with which we partnered. We’ve always held the credo that capital doesn’t guarantee results—it takes the right partner to build enduring value.

Accordingly, we are especially proud to announce that we have been named one of Inc.’s 50 founder-friendly private equity firms.

We understand that every business is unique and has its own culture, strategy and organizational structure. But at the core, every business can thrive with capital that is accompanied by a partnership grounded by our values of genuine commitment, responsiveness and flexibility.

Looking towards 2021, we are excited to continue with this momentum into another strong year of new opportunities and continued partnerships with our 15+ active portfolio companies.

We are thrilled to be recognized and be accompanied by some of the leading investors in private equity. Access the full Inc PE 50 list for 2020 here.
