History[edit]
The firm was founded in February 2000 as a partnership between venture capital firm Accel Partners and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, one of the oldest and largest leveraged buyout firms.[1] However, the firm operates independently of either firm since the mid-2000s. The firm’s Founding Partner is Tom Barnds, who is based in Menlo Park. Tom, and his co-Managing Partner Rob Palumbo, were both All-American lacrosse players at Princeton University.
Accel-KKR raised $4 billion of investor commitments. The company is currently[2] investing from its fifth buyout fund (Accel-KKR Capital Partners V), a $1.3 billion fund raised in 2015, and its second minority equity fund (Accel-KKR Growth Capital Partners II), a $350 million fund raised in 2013. Accel-KKR has invested in or acquired over 100 software and technology-enabled services companies, with the majority of such companies in the United States, but Accel-KKR has also acquired or invested in 18 European companies, six Canadian companies, and one Australian company.
