Investment Thesis

Adolescence is a time of immense promise, yet systemic barriers often prevent young people from historically underinvested populations from achieving their aspirations.

As a social impact investor, Hopelab Ventures invests in companies that support the mental health and well-being of adolescents (ages 10-25) particularly BIPOC and LGBTQ+ youth. The organization backs founders with lived experience related to the youth and mental health topics it supports. The team believes those founders are uniquely equipped to develop effective solutions.

Hopelab Ventures’ investment approach combines early-stage capital with expertise in research, design, youth co-creation, and payment models to support the development and adoption of better, more diverse, and accessible mental health and well-being solutions for young people at scale.

    The Ventures team invests in companies building scalable solutions designed to improve the mental health and well-being of adolescents. This age group does not need to be the sole population the company serves but needs to be a core focus area. Solutions can range from digital health to social media, as long as they are built with mental health and well-being outcomes in mind.
