H2 Ventures was founded in 2013 by brothers Ben and Toby Heap. Investing in founding teams and the best emerging talent from day zero, we become venture partners for life, providing more than just capital. We bring networks, mentoring and operational guidance to bold early-stage entrepreneurs with game-changing ideas in Fintech, Data and AI. And we provide curated career paths for the best and brightest talent emerging from Australian tertiary education institutions.
After years of working with some of Australia’s most talented and innovative startup founders, we believe that an organisation’s greatest innovation advantage is, in fact, its people. For this reason, we launched the H2X Talent Development program in 2023.

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.
