Philosophy

Our investment philosophy reflects the companies we work with: ambitious, innovative, growth-focused. These are more than just buzzwords – unlike most other investment firms, where the general partners put up 1 or 2% of the firm’s invested capital, a substantial amount of our capital is from our general partners investing their own money. 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 $4 to $5 million – and as large as $50 million, making us the ideal partner for emerging brands that have embarked on a path of serious and sustainable growth.
