Along with his brothers, he led the growth of SerVend into a worldwide corporation with more than 300 employees and $70 million in annual sales. SerVend was nationally recognized for business and leadership excellence, being honored with a site visit by the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award and as a recipient of the USA Today Quality Cup, among others. SerVend was sold in 1997 to Manitowoc, a Fortune 500 company. In 1999, he founded Iceberg Ventures, a private investment firm, and later was a co-founder of bCatalyst, the first business accelerator in Louisville. Fischer has helped create more than 1,000 local jobs and has been an active investor and board member in numerous companies across multiple industries, ranging from MedVenture Technology to Vogt Ice to Stonestreet One. He is a partner and former CEO of Dant Clayton Corporation, which designs, manufactures and constructs sports stadiums around the country.
