Investment Funds

Highline BETA invests in early stage startups that are either co-created through our work with corporates or independently aligned to our investment themes and interests. We invest alongside our corporate partners and independently as well, but always with an eye towards how we can accelerate startups through our corporate relationships and add value to everyone involved.

AngelList Syndicate

AngelList Syndicates provide us with a flexible funding vehicle that will help drive towards startup co-creation faster, and provide our newly co-created startups with the right seed capital to get going. You can participate in our AngelList Syndicate by making a commitment to invest in future opportunities that we present through the platform.

Female Funders

Highline BETA acquired Female Funders in order to continue its mission to empower and support 1,000 women to become active angel investors by 2020. Through Female Funders we believe there will be many opportunities to build funding vehicles led by women for women entrepreneurs and founders. Please visit Female Funders to learn more.
