HRV Principals have early-stage investing and operating experience as well as broad national networks and strong local ties in Michigan built on long-standing relationships with venture capitalists, strategic corporate partners, and economic development groups.
With an extended network of 100+ venture firms with whom its principals and partners have collaborated and/or invested, HRV leverages the resources of a much larger venture firm.
HRV also accesses its global network of energy and transportation industry experts that represent potential collaborators, customers, and acquirers of portfolio companies’ technologies, which drive portfolio earnings growth and exits opportunities.
As evidenced by the Accelerator Fund Program, State and local economic development groups are committed to rebuilding Michigan’s innovation ecosystem and supporting emerging companies and industries. HRV collaborates closely with organizations across the State to support its portfolio companies through each phase of their growth.
Leveraging its experience and extended network, HRV adds unique value to portfolio companies by providing guidance and introductions to executives in the formative days of their companies.
