Why Karpos Capital Partners?

You and your business partners have dedicated your lives to building a great business. Now, the time has come to activate a succession plan and achieve that once-in-a-lifetime liquidity event.

So, how do you accomplish this without disrupting key customer relationships, de-stabilizing your family members, or dis-enfranchising your employees?

How do you ensure that your legacy and lifestyle will be protected and preserved, both during and after the disposition of your business?

Karpos Capital Partners can help you achieve each of these goals.

The Greek word “Karpos ” means the “fruit of the harvest.

We provide capital to facilitate a fair and straight-forward exit process for business owners ready to harvest the fruit of their efforts to build great companies.

Then we partner with the management teams, leveraging our relationships and operational expertise to continue growing their companies.
