Welcome to Kingdom Venture Partners
We are a Different Type of Venture Capital Firm
We are a different type of venture capital firm. We are focused on
experienced management, value creation, market penetration, sustainable margins, barriers to entry, competitive
advantage, cost containment, revenue growth and profitable exits the same as other vc's,
but we believe in a leveraged bottom line.
Most VC's invest in the head and the grey matter between the ears—an entrepreneur’s or team’s education, knowledge, track record, intellect and experience—plus their chemistry as a team and with the VC. Those attributes and characteristics are important to us as well but Kingdom Venture Partners looks for wholistic opportunities and management teams where there is integration between the head and the heart, not just one or the other. So we are equally concerned about what is in the heart as well as in the head because we believe that when we invest, we are investing in the whole company with all of its assets and liabilities, and not just one part or dimension of it.
We add a layer of due diligence which we call Spiritual Due Diligence™. (Click

We believe it is possible to invest in companies that not only raise the
standard of living and redefine the standard of excellence in their industry
or sector, but that also raise the standard of ethics and values in their cities,
communities, regions and states.
We believe it is possible and desirable
for companies and venture funds to have a multiple bottom line that encompasses
social, spiritual and relationship capital as well as economic capital. We believe
that God is at work in the venture capital and private equity industry and arena
just as He is in every other sector and field of human endeavor, enterprise and
We look for exponential growth potential rather than incremental growth. (Click

capital is a scarce commodity and that not every business deserves to be funded
by professional investors. We also believe there is a distinct difference
between knowledge and wisdom, and that both are required to succeed in business.
We believe in prayer and fasting and divine favor. We believe in miracles but
prefer to walk in blessings. We value leadership, vision, integrity, teamwork,
intelligence, creativity, hard work, candor, communication, and the ability to
focus on the bottom line and meet deadlines, milestones and budgets.
Unlocking Storehouses (Click
for White Paper)
The concept of a storehouse means a place of storage for the purpose of
gathering surplus or extra, to have more than enough for your own need.
Synonyms for storehouses are barns, granaries, storerooms, treasuries,
foundations, businesses, stocks and bank accounts. God builds for scale,
for more than enough. When He made water, he didn’t just use a bucket or
a sink or a water cooler or a water tower; he made the seas. When God
looks at a mountain range, he sees more than majesty and grandeur and
beauty. He sees what is underneath the mountains and inside the
mountains—minerals like gold and silver and platinum and oil and
gas and coal and copper and uranium. And God sees what is on top
of the mountains—snow—which can be used for recreation or for
water in the spring when it melts.
Mankind is created in the image of God, and since God is a storehouse
and God owns storehouses, both in heaven and on earth, then we are to
be storehouses and to own storehouses in heaven and on earth. Just as
Joseph at age 30 oversaw the royal storehouses (granaries) in Egypt,
and through that position impacted the nations of the world, there are
modern day storehouses like Amazon, Amgen, Chick-Fil-A, eBay, Google,
Hobby Lobby, Home Depot, Mannatech, Microsoft, Oracle, Wal-Mart Stores,
Yahoo, and others where God has raised up wise men and women to rule
and/or to stand next to a Pharaoh, Cyrus, Cleopatra, or Queen of Sheba.
Similarly, we look for emerging growth companies that have the potential
to become storehouses, and we help founders, management teams, CEOs, and
Boards unlock their storehouse. The Kings of old—for example, Egypt,
Israel and Judah—had storehouse cities. Today national governments
and multinational corporations have storehouse cities—military bases,
nuclear arsenals, federal mints, gold reserves, raw materials,
factories and manufacturing plants, etc.
Our investment sweet spot is $500,000 to $5,000,000 per portfolio company and we typically target
Series A, B or C rounds of investment. Accordingly, we prefer valuations at or below $10,000,000 to $20,000,000.
We prefer equity investments but will consider secured
bridge financings and convertible debentures. We are willing to lead smaller
rounds or on occasion be the sole investor in deals but also look to syndicate
larger rounds with other investment firms from our network. Because of the depth
of our Advisory Boards, we will consider investments in almost any industry,
so we are opportunistic and strategic in our investing. We prefer to be approached
through our networks from someone we already know and trust rather than
receiving "cold calls" or "over the transom" emails or deliveries, and
we expect most if not all of our investments to be from referrals by our
network. We admire confidence, courage and boldness but detest arrogance,
pride and inflated egos. (Click

We prefer to invest with serial entrepreneurs and
management teams that have "been there, done that" before and with companies
where the founders and management have "skin in the game" and where some
level of revenues and market validation are present. And we look for
God-sized ventures. Is there room for God to work or move or act in your
business or is everything neatly wrapped up in a box with a bow on it
with all the answers in place? If you are still reading, then you may
be a potential candidate for Kingdom Venture Partners.
