We're creating a space for alumni to meaningfully collaborate and engage with HBS entrepreneurs.
We want to level the playing field and create more opportunities for angel investors, advisors and entrepreneurs in the HBS startup / search fund ecosystem by:
Join a dynamic community of entrepreneurs and investors where ideas are exchanged and relationships are formed. If you're new to investing, learn the ropes from experienced angels.
Halo works to secure exclusive round allocations and investment opportunities that other investors may never see. Get quality HBS deal flow without doing all of the sourcing work yourself.
Our platform makes it easy to invest. We take care of the back-office work allowing you to focus on deal evaluation.
We are committed to sourcing and helping underrepresented entrepreneurs that are often overlooked.
Connect, share ideas and learn from other investors through our online forum and Slack group.
HBS entrepreneurs are seriously interested in tapping into the breadth and depth of expertise in our alumni base. Halo makes it easy to get involved.
Browse, diligence and invest without leaving our portal.
Halo uses e-sign for all term sheets and delivers tax documents electronically through the portal.
Keep track of your investments in the portfolio tab.
See what other investors are saying about a deal or ask the entrepreneur a question yourself. The answers are posted for other investors' benefit.
Investors can quickly build a diversified portfolio with minimum investments as low as $2,500.
"Some HBS founders don't have the social capital to raise a friends and family round. I think Halo will help level the playing field and give more entrepreneurs the chance to succeed."
"I think this is a cool way to stay in touch with what's happening at the school and with young alumni. We have an incredible community and Halo is going to make it easier to feel connected to it."
"Halo excites me because it allows HBS entrepreneurs to make the most of the HBS network. We always hear stories of HBS entrepreneurs who were funded by classmates but its tough to find who in your class or alums who would be willing to fund your venture..."
"Great idea and eager to support you all and this impactful mission to democratize access to early investment in the next generation of great businesses."
"Halo will dramatically increase the value of the HBS network for student and alumni founders. It's a brilliant concept, long overdue, and will be even better given that it's built by student founders. As an HBS alum, I hope to see HBS embrace Halo the way Apple embraced app developers."
"As a founder, I love the idea of engaging HBS' broader startup community in my venture while at the same time having access to a more diverse set of investors than if I went the traditional route"
