About Page Image

Access Ventures is a 501(c)(3) operating foundation based in Louisville, Kentucky. We strive for excellence and forward-thinking that challenges the status quo with new and creative ways to make impactful investments. We choose investments based on a risk and return analysis as well as inspecting for mission alignment, whether directly into a privately-held company or passive market investments. 

We work with organizations of all sizes in the private, public, and social sector providing capital for entrepreneurs pushing the world forward. We set the bar high for ourselves and we refuse to fall short. Every investment we make into a business or community must be something we are proud of, something we ourselves support, and something people will love. If you are involved with an organization, initiative, or idea that you believe is an investment that matters then we would like to hear from you.
