behind access

our story

Founded in 2020, Access VC is the purpose-driven venture arm of Reckitt. We invest in founders who fight for access to better hygiene, health and nutrition.

We’re giving them access to Reckitt’s capability, experts, brands, and scale; so they can grow, succeed, and change the world sooner.

what defines access?

We believe in the power of putting people first, that’s why we’ve developed a set of founder-centric values that drive how and who we work with.

Purpose-led

We invest in founders with big ideas for a cleaner, healthier world.

Inclusive

We welcome everyone and champion founders from all backgrounds.

Empowering

We work with founders as peers and partners to build shared success.

access is

purpose-led

Purpose is at the heart of our work, our investments, and our vision for a better future. We only back founders who share our vision of a world in which access to better hygiene, health, and nutrition is a right, not a privilege.

Certified B Corp Pending

We walk the walk and are Certified B Corp Pending - we know what it means to truly lead a purpose-led business.

access is

inclusive

We won’t have fair access for all if there isn’t a seat at the table for all. The drive, talent, and vision needed to be a purpose-led founder isn’t exclusive - we invest in founders with the right ideas, not the ‘right’ background.

access is

empowering

We work alongside founders so they can achieve their mission quickly and at scale. We get involved and build businesses together, creating shared success based on the unique insights and perspectives of each founder.
