Building a great company takes more than capital.

It takes creativity, teamwork, and passion.

Founded by business leader and entrepreneur, Vic Keller, KLV partners with founders and management teams to build and grow high-potential companies across the globe.

From startup to Fortune 500, Vic understands the value of building a company and the vision it takes to lead teams towards success.

His unique background has provided him with insight to the real-world challenges and opportunities that growth companies face in taking their businesses to the next level.

At KLV, Vic has built a team that equally appreciates these principles and together they work to realize a growing company’s full potential. Building a great company takes more than capital. It takes creativity, teamwork, and passion.

This experience and perspective has helped each of our portfolio companies achieve extraordinary results and position themselves for sustainable success.
