We invest in people who create value and deliver results.

Kompass Kapital Management is a Kansas City-based private equity group with a diversified investment portfolio of passive and active investments across varied industries and business sectors.

The evolution of strategic capital.

We’ve always aimed to do things a little differently at Kompass. And it’s taken some time to get where we are today. But since the very beginning, there’s been a commonality that has driven our decisions, our growth, processes, and investments:

Invest in good people to do good business with. It’s that simple.

For us, the returns are beyond economics. It’s building camaraderie and a culture that employees are excited to be a part of. It’s partnering with companies and delivering an experience that grows and accelerates their business.
