Fortune’s October/November issue features Kim Kardashian on the cover, as one of the magazine’s 100 Most Powerful Women. The reality TV star showcased her business mindset by sporting an oversized black blazer and matching trousers. Along with a monochromatic brown makeup look that highlighted her striking features, Kardashian also revealed her new project – opening a private equity firm called SKKY Partners. Unlike other celebrities who invest passively, Kardashian plans to be fully hands-on in the venture capital process, showing her dedication to the project.
Upcoming endeavor: During her conversation with the media, she discussed her latest upcoming venture which involves venturing into capital investment and launching her own private equity company called SKKY Partners.
The woman in question is quite busy juggling various tasks and commitments. When asked how she manages to handle everything, she revealed that her secret lies in having a patient mindset. She focuses on the bigger picture and takes things one step at a time.
According to an article by Fortune, Scott Budnick, a producer who worked with Kardashian on prison reform, confirmed her dedication to her work. He described her as someone who “sinks her teeth in and goes all in” when she believes in something. Despite juggling various ventures, Kardashian manages her time commitments by having a patient mindset and looking at the bigger picture. Her colleagues describe her as more professional and laid-back in person compared to her onscreen persona. Kardashian is known to speak softly and slowly but is a great listener who takes in all available information before taking action. This approach was developed after feeling unheard due to power dynamics. She is now applying this approach to her newest venture with former Burberry CEO and Apple SVP, Angela Ahrendts, as the senior operating advisor of SKKY Partners.
Motivated: Despite facing doubts about her skills, she attributes her success to her motivation to establish a lasting legacy. She believes that her drive to prove the skeptics wrong has contributed to her persistence in pursuing her goals.
During an interview, Kardashian discussed the characteristics of her ideal portfolio company. She stated that she desires an active founder who is fully committed to their company’s success and has a clear vision and dreams. Authenticity and the “magic sauce” are also essential elements that she looks for in a business. Furthermore, she emphasized that working with her fund would not entail transforming a company into something resembling her own brand, as this would be unnecessary and unproductive. Despite encountering skepticism about her abilities, Kardashian explained that her determination to establish her legacy has been a driving force behind her success. She believes that feeling underestimated motivates her to keep pushing forward.
