Why Good Folks?

Good Folks was our first investment and pre-dated our thesis for Venture Fund 1. We were impressed with their business model and focus on wholesale operations, which inevitably allowed them to focus more on sourcing and building the right supply chain relationships.

How We Helped

Access Ventures worked closely with the founder to develop a strategic plan to grow his operations. The business needed a production and training facility, an increase in roasting capacity, and key employees to take to the next step in growing their small business.

We helped renovate a new facility in the Shelby Park neighborhood in Louisville, KY that provided room for large-scale roasting and packaging, as well as a space to train cafe owners and baristas and hold cupping events. We also provided the capital necessary to increase roasting capacity and hire the employees needed to grow the business.

We have expended a considerable amount of human capital in the form of strategic direction, board advisory, and financial management.
