Thesis

Funding requirementsWe invest in US-based start-up companies building at the nexus of impact, growth, and diversity. Within our company-building ecosystem, we have H/L Studio (https://h-l.vc/hl-studio/), which works with businesses from inception through pre-Series A; and CityRock Ventures (https://h-l.vc/cityrock-ventures/), which makes Series A & B investments.

H/L Ventures’ involvement with our portfolio companies is as hands-on and supportive as possible throughout the entrepreneurship journey. This is the hallmark of H/L’s approach: we hold ourselves to a standard of virtually daily contact with every company in our portfolio, on an open-ended basis. This is not the empty promise of a website value-added page, but the core of our investment thesis. We host weekly calls with our senior portfolio team and each team of founders, which leads to daily activities involving our staff, Venture Partners, EPIRs, advisors, and network of service providers. All of this is in a supportive mode, meant to ensure that whatever needs our portfolio companies have, we remain actively relevant and helpful, every day. This care is given to all portfolio companies, regardless of which H/L Ventures vehicle is engaged.
