Kepha Partners

“Kepha” is Aramaic for “rock.” They have a back-to-basics approach focused on pre-seed, seed and Series A companies. They call this “venture building,” and it is what created the venture industry in the first place. It is the foundation, or rock, of venture capital.

Their mission:

  1. Be the true entrepreneur’s first choice

  2. Aggressively build shareholder value that will last for many generations

  3. Establish a new standard for value-add and become the McKinsey & Co. for entrepreneurs

They seek entrepreneurs who have disruptive ideas and know that they can do it better. They recruit executives who are energized by making a difference in how they lead teams and out-execute incumbents. They want to work with people who would rather try and fail vs. not try at all.
