Headquartered in Louisville, KY, Chrysalis Ventures seeks to partner with management teams across Mid-America to build businesses with enduring value through technology and active collaboration. Chrysalis Ventures manages over $400 million and has invested in more than 70 companies during its 25-year history.
Chrysalis Ventures partners with talented management teams by providing the business intelligence, market knowledge, deep resources, technological expertise and financial discipline that are critical to success. We take a direct, straightforward approach in our work and our relationships, challenging ourselves and management teams to exceed expectations and deliver superior results.
On behalf of our portfolio companies, we leverage a network of high-value relationships built over the firm’s 25-year history that extends across industries and geographic regions. This network is a ready resource for everything from building new customer relationships to sourcing the best talent and advisors.
Our principals sit on many boards and are in regular contact with strategic partners and co-investors, as well as industry experts, executives and directors of public and private companies who provide industry insight.
Supplementing the Chrysalis Ventures team is a network of successful entrepreneurs- or executives-in-residence (EIRs) who have been attracted to work with the team to help diligence opportunities, work on their next project or consult with Chrysalis Ventures portfolio companies. Many serve on boards of our portfolio companies, although this is not a requirement.
