Building calm companies with great people
For over a decade, Marty Balkema and I have dreamed about owning a portfolio of good profitable businesses. In early 2019, we committed ourselves to making it happen within a year. In April, we had a series of conversations that led to a plan for consolidating our equity across existing businesses, hiring replacements at our core roles, and finding a few investment partners.
And today, as we kick off 2020, we're happy to announce Calm Capital.
Our goal was to find profitable companies with founders looking for a smooth exit. We wanted this company to be an example of what mindful capitalism looks like in practice on every level: internally within our teams, as well as externally when interacting with customers and partners.
The name "Calm" was chosen because it reflects what we hope will be an important aspect of how we operate at Calm Capital. We want to work with patience and find profitable and purposeful companies to buy and invest in.
