Philosophy

Our investment philosophy reflects the companies we work with: ambitious, hands-on, growth-focused. These are more than just buzzwords – a full 30% of every KarpReilly investment involves our partners personally investing their own capital. That’s how much we believe in the companies we partner with.

Our target: premier growth companies in the consumer sector within the following areas:

  • Retail, e-commerce, direct-to-consumer
  • Restaurants
  • Branded consumer products
  • Apparel
  • Food and beverage
  • Natural products; LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability)

KarpReilly makes equity investments as small as $3 to $5 million – and as large as $75 million. Our typical investment holding period is 8 to 10 years, making us the ideal partner for emerging brands that have embarked on a path of serious growth.
