Access Ventures is an impact investment firm that builds more inclusive economies through mission-aligned investments that enable communities to flourish. We work with organizations of all sizes, from startups to enterprises, in the private, public, and social sector. Our vision is to impact the world by providing capital to the best solutions and organizations with the most significant potential to challenge the status quo.

We believe that all people should be valued and honored regardless of race, ethnicity, orientation, economic status, gender, or religion. We propose an environment dictated not by self-interest, but by valuing the importance of helping others. We work to accurately identify the essentials needed to create investments that deliver financial, social, and environmental returns.

We step into challenging situations, wrestle with their complexity, and create or resource solutions that help these ventures succeed. We create tailored investment strategies using a layered and balanced capital approach around the various needs in communities. We believe that when we open up access for the underserved, we build the community we all desire to live in.

Investment Approach

Access Ventures seeks organizations that share our desire to see people and communities flourish and operate businesses that are economically viable. In a traditional investment portfolio, one’s values and morals can be largely ignored. We believe our financial decisions should not be in conflict with our corporate and personal values. Furthermore, we believe we can achieve attractive returns without compromising our mission to build more inclusive economies.

We strive for excellence and forward-thinking that challenges the status quo with new and creative ways to make impactful investments. Our investment approach begins with a process of reviewing a companies mission-alignment with our organization. After determining a fit, we then move to a financial review of the opportunity. We believe that opportunities to create an inclusive economy come in all shapes and sizes, therefore a single investment vehicle is not sufficient. We invest across a spectrum of asset classes, ranging from program-related investments to market-rate investments. This leads to a blended portfolio approach that is maximized for impact and weighted for return.
