Human Ventures

We go beyond the business model to build and invest in Model Businesses with ambitious founders who are innovating around Human Needs. By unlocking access to a powerful network of founders, investors and corporate partners, we are creating a blueprint for the future of business to be built on purpose®.

At Human Ventures, “value” isn’t just a measure of worth, it’s a measure of character. Our values guide everything we do—from our office culture to our company-building approach.

If you’re not out of your comfort zone, you’re not growing.

Growth is an essential part of being human. And at Human Ventures, it’s an essential part of success. If you want to build a better company, start by building a better you. See how far you can stretch yourself. Aim higher than the status quo.

Being Human takes guts.

Launching new companies isn’t always easy— in fact it almost never is. This business takes courage—the courage to act confident even when you don’t quite feel it, the courage to listen to your intuition, to take big swings, and to keep at it, even when the going gets tough.

To err is Human. Shake it off.

Everyone makes mistakes. Absolutely everyone. But we don’t let mishaps bog us down. The strongest leader isn’t the one who makes the best plans. It’s the one who can watch their plans fall apart, then rally the team, and start putting a new plan in place.

Open minds open doors.

We go out of our way to welcome people into our space. We strive for intellectual diversity, and we yearn for different opinions and perspectives. We believe good tension is the catalyst for discovery and creating big, important things.

Have an attitude of gratitude.

We believe in gratitude—showing it, feeling it, living it. We try not to forget how fortunate we are to be doing meaningful work alongside bright, dedicated teammates. Building companies is tough, but with optimism and gratitude, we really can tackle the world’s biggest challenges.
