H/L Ventures Organization Expand Collapse

H/L Ventures responds effectively and proactively to our portfolio companies via a powerful team and community. Organized in a hub and spoke model around our core portfolio staff, four key communities help us co-build companies: Venture Partners, Advisors, Member Partners, and our affiliated Partner Network.

Staff Team

H/L Ventures’ staff provide the central hub for all our activities, leading sourcing, diligence, investment, portfolio support, and internal operations and strategy for our firm. The Portfolio Team is focused on selecting and growing the H/L Ventures portfolio, while the Operations Team keeps the company in order.

Venture Partners

Our Venture Partners are senior experts in their fields, each with their own work, but with a strong affiliation to H/L Ventures, in contact with our team throughout each week. These Venture Partners bring their networks, experience, and insight to bear on H/L Ventures’ sourcing and selection pipeline, our portfolio support, and our own growth as a firm. Our Venture Partners hail from across the country and from diverse backgrounds that together form a powerful addition to our team.
