Investing in Tomorrow's

Great Technology Companies

What We Look For

BHV members look at a wide variety of investment opportunities, but our sweet spot is early and growth stage digital businesses in the software, e-commerce and marketing spaces. We like to invest in businesses where our backgrounds, knowledge and networks can add value beyond the capital we invest. We look for companies that have shown product market fit, the ability to execute, and have a great team behind them.  

Our Process

  • Typically one of our members will identify a new opportunity and act as a "sponsor".

  • This sponsor will do early diligence (read investor docs, meet with entrepreneur, and do market research).

  • If they find the opportunity appealing they will share it with the broader group to gauge interest. 

  • Members who are interested will then meet with the entrepreneur and dive deeper.

  • Members who decide to invest often do so individually. That said, sometimes we create Special Purpose Vehicles (SPV) to make investments as one single entity.

  • We prefer not to be the lead investor and are always excited to see a larger VC lead the round and set the terms.

  • If we are investing during the seed/startup phase, we prefer equity, but will consider SAFE, KISS and convertible notes.

  • Once invested, a BHV Member will be designated as the central contact for ongoing communication/support.
