We are a St. Louis, MO based venture capital firm that is DIFFERENT BY DESIGN.
We invite you to explore our website and learn how we value our investors, identify the best investment opportunities and define success.
Our Guiding Principles
Our goal is to provide our investors with a superior investment return by identifying early capital opportunities within a fund structure that is transparent, focused and cost conscious.
We value the trust our investors place in us above all else. We strive to be true business partners with our portfolio companies and we place the highest importance on our reputation. Our core ethical values will guide every decision we make.
We are St. Louisians. We take pride in our region and strive to make it a better place to live and work. While we invest where the opportunities are best, we want to help local entrepreneurs build successful companies.
We give investors more control.
We invest in people as much as product.
We build relationships along with portfolios.
ACM was started with the idea of being a different type of venture capital firm. After many years of being on the investor side of the table, we believed that it was time to do things a little (or a lot) different. So in late 2012 ACM was founded and began operations in February 2013.
We built this firm around giving investors the opportunity to determine which companies they wanted (and did not want) to invest in. We built a firm with below average fees and above average hurdle rates.
We provide our portfolio companies with significant capital so they can be successful and truly desire to make every investment a win (investor) – win (entrepreneur) – win (ACM) result.
