Our Mission

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:

  • Fostering a vibrant community committed to educating investors and seeing more entrepreneurs succeed 
  • Reducing barriers to participation 
  • Streamlining and simplifying the fundraising / investment process

What Our Supporters Say

  • "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." 

    Bukie Adebo (MBA 2021), Founder @ Liza
  • "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." 

    Hope Johnson (MBA 2020)
  • "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..." 

    Molefe Choane (MBA 2021), Founder @ MT Global Traders
  • "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." 

    Abby Rimel (MBA 2020)
  • "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." 

    David Klein (MBA 2020), Founder @ Parade
  • "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"

    Tina Beilinson (MBA 2020), Founder @ June Motherhood
