What's your kickpoint?

We scale established middle market businesses, driving 2-5x growth and 5-10x enterprise value in 2-5 years.

why do businesses choose kickpoint?
  • We get to sustainable value. We have a second to none track record; and we use a world-class, tested approach to navigate complexity.
  • We overwhelm with our resourcefulness. We work as hard as business owners, complement strengths, and find the needed help.
  • We get paid only when we have impact. We invest deeply as team members and work for free until we have an impact.
why do professionals choose kickpoint?
  • It is purposeful. We work deep in the communities in which we live. Our work and our lives are not separate things - they are integrated. We build lifelong friendships.
  • It is personal. We work as owners. We own the outcomes with the CEOs and teams we support, execute as part of their teams, and tie our fees to their impact.
  • It is human. We believe in taking ownership for and agency in personal growth, cultivating a set of relationships to get better every day, and supporting each other.
