Access Venture Partners is an early stage venture capital fund. Together over the past 14 years, the partners at Access Venture Partners have invested in over fifty early stage companies and have served as founders and early executives of numerous companies. Through this experience we have built an understanding of how to navigate the challenges associated with building successful companies and drive them to success.
Our passion is helping entrepreneurs build great companies. We do much more than merely supplying capital; we actively participate in building the management and distribution infrastructure required to aggressively grow new businesses. As investors, we wear many hats in supporting our portfolio companies, helping to design sales and marketing strategies, define product road maps, recruit talent and raise capital.
Our Investment Focus
We have offices in Austin and Denver and invest throughout North America. Access typically makes its initial investment as part of the first institutional
round and often continues investing in subsequent rounds. Our current investment activity is focused on the following areas of interest:
No list would be exhaustive; we also keep an open mind and consider unique opportunities. In general, we look for high gross-margin businesses in large markets, not narrow niches.
Our Investment Criteria
We understand that seed stage companies are human chemistry experiments. In the 50 plus deals we have done, we have gained significant insight into the types
of people that turn good ideas into real businesses. The technology and market opportunity only matter if our companies operate with high-margin revenue
streams and as financially efficient organizations.
