MISSION & CULTURE
Earnest collaboration with a common goal in mind builds stronger teams and solutions. Harnessing a cooperative and agile strategy gives us the power to collectively achieve more.
Building positive and lasting relationships drives the success of our business and communities. Our connections among people and organizations are vital and valued.
From the investment process to operations, all projects receive the same steadfast commitment and thoughtfulness to the end. Always.
An inclusive culture is embodied from the top down. Utilizing each individual’s unique strengths and perspectives amplifies our overall success as a team.
At our core is an entrepreneurial spirit. Leveraging the power of technology, a creative mindset and broad vision allows us to discover new potential.
A principled and considerate approach guides all of our actions. Integrity is fundamental to how we perform our work and treat our colleagues inside and outside the firm.
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
At Kinzie, diversity, equity and inclusion are rooted in our values. We believe they are integral elements of our competitive advantage. Each team member is evaluated and embraced for their individuality as well as their varying backgrounds and experiences. Our commitment to fairness, inclusivity and curiosity fosters cohesiveness allowing us to work extraordinarily well together. Not only do we have a broad range of experiences, but our culture is further enhanced by inviting a wide variety of interests. We believe this mosaic creates an optimal environment to uncover the most attractive investment opportunities to create long-term value for our investors and stakeholders.
In the heart of our office is the Kinzie mural. Completed with the help of all team members and their families, it features Kinzie’s core elements rooted above the handprints of its youngest contributors. This artwork connects what we do with who we are, and serves as a bright and bold example of our culture and people.
We host several MBA graduate students and undergraduate students throughout the year through our partnerships with The University of Chicago Booth School of Business and Northwestern University. Kinzie interns receive an immersive experience in private equity, with direct access to senior management and the entire investment process. Along with a high-touch approach and professional mentorship, our interns have the opportunity to participate in all aspects of the firm including social, volunteer and educational activities.
We have developed a supportive culture and dynamic experience with our internship program, and are proud to introduce each new class of interns to the Kinzie way.
