Kanbrick Opens Applications for Fall 2021 Build with Kanbrick Cohort

After Successful Program Launch, Kanbrick Launches Second Wave of Business Program

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kanbrick, the long-term investment partnership co-founded by Tracy Britt Cool and Brian Humphrey, announced that it is accepting applications for its second Build with Kanbrick business program. The free three-month program is designed to help midsize companies create lasting value and growth.


Kanbrick will select a class of up to five owners and CEOs of midsize companies for the fall 2021 cohort. Participants will receive one-on-one sessions with the Kanbrick team and collaborative group sessions with guest experts, as well as templates, tools, and resources focused on growing their businesses.

“There are a number of resources for start-up businesses, but there aren’t as many options for midsize businesses,” said Britt Cool. “The strong demand we experienced for our first Build with Kanbrick cohort reaffirmed the need for this business program, and our commitment to helping organizations and people reach their full potential.”

Kanbrick launched the program January 2021, and selected five companies out of more than 45 applicants to participate in the inaugural cohort. The spring 2021 cohort included family- and founder-owned companies: Cotopaxi, SET Environmental, Three Ships, Truck Centers, and Woodbine Manufacturing.

“I would pay six figures to do this all over again,” said program alum Zach Clayton, Founder and CEO of Three Ships. “Build with Kanbrick is like an advanced MBA course but 10 times better. It’s facilitated by proven, successful leaders, the cohort includes CEOs you want to learn from, and the curriculum is customized to your needs.”

Build with Kanbrick is accepting applications for the fall 2021 cohort through July 31, 2021. The three-month program will run virtually beginning August 16, 2021. Owners and CEOs interested in participating in the Build with Kanbrick program are encouraged to learn more by visiting Kanbrick.com/Build.
