The journey of

investing & thriving
At Kade, we join forces with those who share our love for independence. Our mission is simple: we want small businesses to thrive on their own terms. That’s why we partner through acquisitions and minority stakes, preserving your team’s essence and letting your business flourish independently. Join us in building a brighter future for entrepreneurship
At our core, we are as extraordinary as the individuals we collaborate with – our valued partners and exceptional team members. Together, we are weaving a tale of uniqueness that sets us apart from the rest.
We’re unlike most companies our size. We’re independent, without any investors calling the shots. This gives us the freedom to do what’s right and stay focused on our mission: helping small businesses thrive and compete with the big players.
Talent is everywhere, but opportunities aren’t always equal. Our aim is to level the playing field with our top-notch tools, exceptional team, and comprehensive training. We want to empower more small business owners to create a better future.
We believe businesses should serve people, and the profits should benefit everyone involved. That means our customers, who use our products, and our team, who builds them.
Get answers to frequently asked questions about everything we do.
As a private equity company, we're interested across the board. In fact, most of our companies came to us when they were a couple of people and an idea, having raised no capital before they met us. So, even if you don't think you're ready, we'd still like to get to know you. Maybe we can even help in the meantime.
Of course not. While we're usually the first money in, we've worked with some teams that raised a small friends and family round before coming to us. That said, if you've already raised more than a few million dollars, we're probably not a fit.
No, While we embrace the unconventional, we were fortunate to invest in some of the most extraordinary brands.
So If you're building something different, we want to hear from you and learn about the vision of the future you have in mind.
We look for founders who bring the perfect blend of passion, expertise, and a touch of quirkiness. We want trailblazers who aren't afraid to challenge the status quo and dream big. So, if you've got the drive, the vision, and a sprinkle of quirkiness, we're ready to be your biggest cheerleaders!
