Formerly known as Little Hawk Capital Management and Industry Little Hawk, Industry Ventures is a leading investment firm that capitalizes on inefficiencies in venture capital and technology growth equity. Founded in 2000, the firm manages over $1 billion of institutional capital. Industry Ventures invests with two strategies: i) secondary funds that offer liquidity alternatives for direct investments and limited partnership interests and ii) funds of funds, known as Partnership Holdings, that invest in smaller funds with outsized return potential. Industry Ventures invests in smaller venture capital funds less than $250 million in size. Portfolio diversification typically includes 15-20 partnerships balanced across: i) sector -- information technology, healthcare, and communications; ii) stage -- early and growth; and iii) vintage year -- three year investment period. For secondaries, the firm focuses on investing into later-stage companies with substantial revenue and at or near profitability thereby mitigating the high mortality rate of early-stage venture. Industry's secondary strategy is differentiated by a unique focus on venture capital investments in both secondary direct investments and limited partnership interests with an emphasis on transactions from $1 to $20 million. The firm has an additional office in San Francisco.
