The Vision of the Almond Tree

“A business is like a tree. It starts with a vision, which is the seed. If the vision is planted in the mind and cultivated with faith, thought, and action, it will manifest into reality.”

– Talon Kuhns

ATK Ventures is a Christian Mergers & Acquisitions firm founded in 2016 by Aerik Talon Kuhns. The above quote and logo were inspired by a vision Talon had of an almond tree after hearing Jeremiah 1:11-12.

Talon was an atheist in his early adult life until he had an unexpected encounter with God in 2005. Talon became a born-again Christian and is in the process of writing a book about this life-changing experience entitled “Are You Listening?”

Beginning his M&A career as a Business Broker, Talon developed into a successful Senior M&A Advisor and launched ATK Ventures with a marketplace ministry mindset. Team members are selected based on their expertise and alignment with the firm’s core values. Our passion is leveraging our experience to help our clients achieve their ideal exit.

11 The word of the Lord came to me: “What do you see, Jeremiah?” “I see the branch of an almond tree,” I replied.
12 The Lord said to me, “You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.”

Jeremiah 1:11-12
