    Description:

    KB Partners is a Chicago-based venture capital firm established in 1996 to make investments in early-stage technology companies in the Midwest. KB Partners manages three venture funds. KB Partners got its start by making a series of angel investments in order to establish a track record and name for itself. It has since raised two early-stage technology-oriented traditional venture capital funds, KB Partners Venture Fund I and KB Partners Venture Fund II, from a group of high net worth individuals and institutional investors. Additionally, KB Partners invests out of the Myriad Opportunity Fund. The Myriad Opportunity fund is an early stage venture capital fund newly formed by Keith Bank to invest in a range of companies across a variety of industries and stages that show potential for substantial medium and long-term capital appreciation. All are actively involved in Versatile Sports Partners, a Chicago based firm created to pursue select investment opportunities in the golf and sports industries, along with related real estate situations. The firm focuses its investment activities primarily in the following areas: Communications, Computer Hardware and Software, Indus-trial/Engineering Technology and Products, Information Technology, Internet Infrastructure, Medical Devices and Diagnostics, and Semiconductors. KB Partners targets equity investments in the $1,000,000 to $5,000,000 range.
