Our Firm

Founded in 2000, Accel-KKR is a leading technology-focused private equity firm with $4 billion of capital under management.  We are one of the only private equity firms dedicated exclusively to investing in lower middle market software and technology-enabled services companies. We believe value is created through profitable growth rather than financial engineering, and as a result of our focus and experience, we bring an informed perspective with regard to technology trends, industry structure, competitive trends and the overall value creation process.

We are highly flexible partners.  We seek to solve business problems and not to conform to a standard investment playbook.  We can invest across a range of structures, function as minority or majority investors and commit a wide range of capital – from less than $10 million to over $100 million.

Our typical transactions include:

  • Acquisitions and recapitalizations of founder-owned or closely-held private companies

  • Buyouts of divisions, subsidiaries and business units from public companies

  • Going-private transactions of small public companies

  • Structured minority equity and debt investments
