The aim of Ki is to invest in great business ideas that originate from disabled people and help them to become successful.
We are a new kind of investment business. We believe in a world where ‘disability’ and ‘ability’ come together to create something better. Inspire…Create…Motivate…Empower…that’s the Ki methodology
Kaleidoscope Investments will provide 3 things.
1. Access to Investment
The aim of Ki is to invest in great business ideas that originate from people with disabilities. Ki will work closely with each entrepreneur to transform their idea into a business using the Ki Growth Methodology.
This will be achieved by providing the start-up with a business infrastructure and sector/skill relevant mentor who will partner with them on their business journey. The objective is to allow the entrepreneur to focus purely on their skill set and expertise and Ki will focus on the rest.
Ki will typically invest between £10,000 – £250,000 seed capital into a business in return for a mutually agreed equity stake. This will usually range from 2.5% – 25% but will never exceed 30%. Its aim is not to control the business but to empower the disabled entrepreneur and their team to successfully run it.
2. Access to Mentors
Access to a strong team of mentors that will assist a business through its stages of growth is fundamental to Ki’s success. Our Mentors are all highly experienced entrepreneurs. They have all started, grown and sold businesses and therefore have personal knowledge of the rollercoaster ride that is setting up a business.There will be a series of regular meetings which our investees will be required to attend. This will include quarterly meetings where progress will be discussed against performance targets, connections will be shared, and advice will be offered. On a regular basis we will monitor the performance of your business to ensure all goals and targets are being met.
