Criteria

At KV, we’re looking for ventures that have the growth potential to be billion-dollar companies. There is a significant difference between a million-dollar market and a billion-dollar market. A good return on investment (ROI) is not enough of an incentive for us. We care about pursuing good ROI in large companies. We prefer bold bets, though we make many types of bets. We bet on exceptional entrepreneurs, though we recognize this is a very qualitative and difficult assessment to make. We shun the smaller bet for the bigger bet, so we are a fit if you want to build a big, ambitious company. If you’re seeking a quick sale, there are other, better investment partners for you.

We are not looking for good ROI; we are looking to build companies. In our view, ROI follows company building. We will help you redefine your plan to meet these criteria if the technology breakthroughs are significant. We are good matches for teams that want assistance in building a bigger company, and we have a large range of operating resources to offer.
