About Us

We are a Vancouver-based boutique private equity firm focused on mid-market businesses with revenues between $10 million and $50 million. But that’s what we do. Find out who we are.

The Krystal Difference

Flexible approach

We’re flexible with our ownership structures. We’re comfortable purchasing 100% of your business or being the perfect solution for management teams and ownership groups looking to bring on an outside partner.

Engaged insight

Our involvement does not stop at the financial investment. We bring expertise in finance, strategy, and operations to all of our investments. We work as partners, side-by-side with management to help make financial and strategic decisions, as well as add bench strength as needed. We are known for our helpful, responsive, and trustworthy style of doing business.

Aligned perspective

We’re not structured as a typical private equity fund - we invest our own capital and work with a network of investment partners who have a strong entrepreneurial and mid-market pedigree. We have a long-term horizon and consider each investment a significant commitment to the business and the management team.
