She is collaborating with Jay Sammons, a former Carlyle Group executive, to start SKKY Partners, a new firm that will invest in fast-growing businesses in a variety of industries, including hotel, media, and consumer products.
The fund has not yet begun soliciting funds, and SKKY has said little about its plans. SKYY, on the other hand, will make “both control and minority investments in firms,” according to the couple.
“The interesting part is sitting down with these founders and figuring out what their ambition is,” Kardashian said in an interview with the Journal. “I want to support that, not change who they are in their DNA, but just help them reach to a different level.”
Sammons left Carlyle last summer after a 16-year tenure in which he invested in several well-known firms, including Supreme and Beats by Dre. He has known the Kardashians for several years and approached them with the idea. Kris Jenner, Kardashian’s mother, and manager will become a partner in SKKY.

According to them, the Kardashian-Sammons couple is a good match. Sammons has two decades of investing experience, and Kardashian is perhaps the most popular woman in the world, given to her TV fame and business empire. This could help SKKY gain new clients and promote the brands in which it invests.
Following a new round of funding earlier this year, Kardashian launched Skims, an apparel company valued at around $3 billion.
According to Forbes, Kim became a billionaire last year as a result of Skims and her makeup company KKW Beauty. She has cash, investments, and real estate as assets.
