H2 Ventures is a leading fintech investment firm.
H2 Ventures is reinventing financial services for the retail consumer by bringing together talented entrepreneurs, investors, forward thinking established financial services companies and other thought leaders in the world of technology enabled disruption. H2 Ventures is the manager of the H2 Accelerator - Australia's only dedicated fintech accelerator - and operates out of Sydney's dynamic new fintech hub, Stone & Chalk.
We bring together entrepreneurs and other investors who understand the potential of early stage fintech, providing 'smart money' equity capital as well as knowledge and mentoring to support quality entrepreneurial partners who will not only drive their businesses with passion but take responsibility for their successes.
We have established the H2 Accelerator through which we bring together entrepreneurs, ideas and investors. Through the H2 Accelerator and our later stage venture investment activities, we expect to see the majority of fintech opportunities.
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 an ecosystem of startups, financial institutions, founders, engineers, executives, regulators, legislators, academics and thought-leaders, we strive to be a major contributor to disruption, predominately in financial services as we support Australia's emergence as a global fintech leader.
Ben and Toby Heap established H2 Ventures and have assembled a talented and experienced team with relevant sector and domain expertise in financial services, technology, design and venture investing. Both Ben and Toby are experienced and globally respected fintech investors.
We are building a portfolio of amazing fintech 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.
Each year H2 Ventures hosts a Fintech Expo Day in partnership with the ASX and Investec Australia. This annual event features the latest H2 Accelerator cohort alongside the rest of the H2 portfolio and other Australian fintech thought leaders.
