About us

We’re a Vancouver-based boutique private equity firm focused on mid-market businesses with revenues between $10 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 very comfortable purchasing 100% of your business, or a perfect solution for management teams and ownership groups looking to bring on an outside partner.

Shared perspective

We’re not structured as a typical private equity fund - we invest our own capital and work with a network of investment partners that have substantial entrepreneurial and mid-market investment experience.

Value added insight

Our involvement does not stop at investment. Our investees gain a team of professionals that will work side-by-side with management to help make financial and strategic decisions, as well as bench strength for completing acquisitions, raising financing and assessing capital expenditures.

Why Choose us
