The Philosophy of Abundant Venture Partners

Abundant Venture Partners is a purpose based incubator focused on service based companies in media and healthcare.  The partnership was formed with core beliefs that drive our actions and investment.

  • It is still possible to do well while doing good
  • If it is big enough to care, it is big enough to share
  • We are accountable to ourselves, one another, and for the world around us
  • Diverse perspectives with shared purpose is the best way to create value

 We seek to create or invest in early stage companies that share our values and beliefs.



The AVP Approach

Abundant Venture Partners acts as an active mentor, supporter, and accelerator to our portfolio companies.  This begins with a focus on getting to profitable revenue as quickly as possible to maintain ownership.  Our deep network of relationships allow access to talent, partners, and customers that enable portfolio companies to close transformational sales to accelerate growth with reduced expenditure of money, time, and resource. 

Our commitment to support includes:

  • Sales and marketing strategy and execution
  • Mentoring and building leadership teams
  • Financial planning
  • Extensive legal support
  • Valuation analysis
  • Organizational support to include HR, benefits, and accounting
  • Access to space and inspiration

Finally, Abundant’s unique structure as a holding company grants us flexibility to be a genuine long-term partner with a focus on sustainable growth and profitability.

Our portfolio consists of investments in two main industries, media and healthcare.

Our media companies leverage technology and behavioral analytics to better connect consumers and ideas. Our healthcare technology and service enterprises help patients, providers, and payers to lower costs, increase quality, and improve the patient experience. Importantly, our media companies support the portfolio to accelerate growth.

Abundant seeks to create or invest in early stage companies that help define new markets of opportunity. And we seek to build leadership teams that share our values and beliefs.

Abundant works with its portfolio companies to develop a well-defined Purpose Statement.  Doing so allows us to articulate the vision, values, and attributes of the organization and its people.
