H2 Ventures is a leading fintech and data investment firm.
Since 2013, H2 Ventures has been reinventing financial services by bringing together talented entrepreneurs, investors, forward thinking established financial services organisations and other thought leaders in the world of technology enabled disruption. In 2017 we branched into data and artificial intelligence (A.I.) enabled disruption.
We provide equity capital as well as knowledge and mentoring to support high calibre founders who will not only drive their businesses with passion and energy, but also take responsibility for the focused execution of their idea.
We operate the H2 Accelerator, Australia's only dedicated fintech, data, and A.I. accelerator, with the vision of cultivating a critical mass of talented people to work on world changing ideas.
We believe in a culture of empowerment, of possibility and experimentation, of learning from failure as we seek long-term outcomes, of focused action and honest critique, of collaboration and trust, and of organisational agility.
By fostering the startup ecosystem, and supporting founders as they build the engines of the future, we strive to be a significant contributor to innovation in the Australian economy and to support Australia's emergence as a global leader in fintech, data, and artificial intelligence.

We are building a portfolio of amazing companies led by passionate and inspiring founders. We believe the value of our growing portfolio is far greater than the sum of its parts. We actively encourage our portfolio companies - and our wider H2 partner and mentor networks - to support one other. We hold regular events to bring our H2 family together and provide opportunities for serendipitous collaborations.
