We invest in Exceptional Founders.
For the long run.

For five years we have been Australia’s leading early-stage investors in Fintech, Data and Artificial Intelligence

H2 Ventures was founded in 2013 by brothers Ben and Toby Heap. Investing in founding teams from day zero, we become partners for life, providing more than just money. We bring networks, mentoring and operational guidance to bold early-stage entrepreneurs with game-changing ideas in Fintech, Data and AI.

Our Portfolio

We’ve never been afraid to take the riskiest leaps with founders at the earliest stages. We don’t need to see anything built, developed or launched for us to invest. Candidly, it’s never too early. By bringing smart, passionate and daring people together from day zero, we believe more startups will succeed faster.

We back founders with purpose, ingenuity and instinct. They tend to have tons of energy, unique industry insight, an enthusiasm for learning and a respect for others.

We have been investing in early-stage startups for the better part of 10 years.

How we invest

For the past five years, we have invested on a cohort basis, in 8-16 startups at a time. All our portfolio companies have participated in our 6 month in-house pre-seed program. We are currently taking some time to work more closely with our portfolio companies.

The H2 Ventures team, our mentors and alumni network continue to help founders for the life of their company and beyond.

It’s a privilege to champion our founders.
