Our Philosophy

Three generations of the Keeler family founded, managed and grew Overall Laundry Services
into one of the largest private companies in the Pacific Northwest.

We view ourselves as stewards… of companies, of ideas, and of properties… and feel a deep responsibility to pursue opportunities in a thoughtful, sustainable and ethical way. We treat our partners as family and take great pride in achieving shared success. We know how to build and manage successful companies and understand the time, energy and resources needed to get there.

Early Stage

KIG invests in Puget Sound startups. We typically invest between $100,000 and $1,000,000 per investment. We like to invest early, generally before Series A and frequently at founding. We often lead investments and like to play a supportive and engaged board role to help shape a company early in its life. While generally opportunistic, we actively pursue investments in virtual/augmented/mixed reality, health tech, cloud, e-commerce and software. A typical KIG investment would have the following profile:

  • Founding team with relevant industry experience
  • Headquartered in the greater Puget Sound region
  • Can reach liquidity or sustainability with less than $10,000,000 invested capital
  • Rising tide industry
  • Large scale opportunity (not a feature company)
  • We do not invest in biotech, medical devices, brick and mortar retail, electronic gaming title development or vice related opportunities.

 

We are proud to have been a part of these companies.

Private Equity

KIG Private Equity invests in Pacific Northwest-based businesses that have achieved EBITDA of $1,000,000 with defensible positions in their industry and the region.

Because we have no limited partners and have evergreen capital, KIG Private Equity can be as creative or flexible as necessary, and will consider all of the following situations:

Ownership Transfers

Our primary focus is on acquiring majority ownership positions. KIG has extensive experience working with situations requiring estate planning or generational transfer considerations.

Acquisition by Management

KIG is particularly interested in situations where existing management teams or outside management teams with deep industry experience are looking to acquire a company from long time owners.

Recapitalization

KIG will consider providing debt or equity capital to a company wishing to restructure its balance sheet.

Real Estate

The goal of KIG Real Estate is to build a portfolio of core, profitable holdings located in the greater Puget Sound area. We prefer not to flip properties, but to acquire properties that will be profitable for generations. We invest across all property types including office, retail or mixed use, multi-family, flex or industrial (excluding industrial land), and development sites, with a particular interest in properties that can benefit from rezoning or other value adds.

Since 2007, we have acquired and/or actively managed more than 500,000 SF of commercial properties along with nearly 700 acres of land.
