Avalon Park Group was founded in 1995 by Beat Kahli, a Swiss national investment banker who has more than 30 years of international finance and business experience. As President and CEO of the company, Mr. Kahli is committed to the guiding philosophy that Avalon Park Group invests in companies led by individuals who share his entrepreneurial vision. In this way, Avalon Park Group replaces corporate bureaucracy with efficient and unrestricted decision-making practices.
In March 2020, the Avalon Park Group took this philosophy to a new level by launching the Entrepreneur Fund, which supports and empowers local entrepreneurs as they launch a new business, spin-off from another business or grow an existing small business.

At Avalon Park Group, our mission is to change the way the world lives, learns, works and plays through creating healthy sustainable communities and every aspect thereof. There is value in carrying the principles that we use in designing communities into the work environment, encouraging our employees to maintain a healthy and balanced life. We believe that our strength is in our experience and our experience comes through the passionate dedication our employees channel into everything they do.
A Vision for Healthy Community. The Knowledge to See it Through.
Working Well was the result of a $150,000 Grant that APG has been awarded from Advent Health (then Florida Hospital) in 2016 to become the healthiest company to work for over 3 years! After completing the program, we began implementing the successful strategies in the communities we build through the LiveWell program. Our company’s goal continues to be to provide not only a healthy working environment, but to instill healthy living beyond the work for our staff.
We have a flexible deal structure. Each deal that we undertake is tailored to the needs of our portfolio and their stage of growth. Whether it takes the form of investing in equity, convertibles, or loans, we maintain an iterative, dynamic approach that doesn’t lock us into predetermined paths. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all philosophy, but treat each business as a unique entity. Hence, we do not have a rigid investment or company criteria.
