Harlem Capital Partners ("HCP") is a New York based minority-owned early-stage investment firm on a mission to change the face of entrepreneurship by investing in 1,000 diverse founders over the next 20 years. While we invest in founders from all backgrounds, we are committed to reserving at least 50% of our capital for investments in minority and women founders in the United States.
We have found that although it is hard to create new products or services, it is even more challenging to build businesses. While a large portion of founders were successful employees, a lack of management experience causes members of this community to struggle with hiring, creating culture, implementing systems and achieving maximum scale. As a solution to this challenge, HCP partners with entrepreneurs who have revenue-generating products that can leverage our financial, marketing and operational experiences to implement key processes to go from selling products to running a sustainable business. We are bringing processes and standards to a largely uncharted investment group.
