First Outside Round
Access Venture PartnersAccess Venture Partners Contact: David Gold
Access Venture Partners is an early stage venture capital fund. Over the past 14 years, we’ve invested in over 50 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.
We invest in Clean Technology, SaaS and SaaS Infrastructure, Data Integrity, and New Media companies located throughout North America.
We typically make investments as part of the first institutional round and often continue investing in subsequent rounds. Our investment range is between $250,000 and $2 million.
Criteria for investments:
– exceptional management to be able to scale the organization
– serve a very large market with a distinct competitive advantage.
– product must solve a large problem – no nice tools or accessories.
– strong margins required to be able to scale the company
We currently have investments in TerraLUX (LED lighting) and Tendril Networks (smart grid).
