We’re looking for big ideas rooted in a deep customer insight

HEVO team
At Ulu Ventures, we evaluate all potential investments using a standard rubric built on the following dimensions:
US-focused, seed stage
Big market opportunity
Strong team
Compelling product
Focused go-to-market
Financial viability​
Clear and aligned values

While we consider a wide range of deal types, several factors lead to an automatic “no”:

  • Headquartered outside the US
  • Cannabis or cannabis-related
  • Anything to do with gambling or games of chance

If you feel confident that you are a good fit, please click the button to complete our intake form. We endeavor to screen every pitch we receive within ten business days and usually get it done in fewer than five. We follow a five-step process for evaluating potential investments (read the complete description of our process). Our ambition is to get to key decision points quickly and transparently.

Email matters
Put your email address in your deck. Make it easy for us to get in touch and use a “real” email. Everyone has a Gmail, Hotmail, or university email account; do not submit your pitch using one of these accounts. Making an effort to secure a domain name is an early and easy sign you’re serious about your venture, so please use your company email.

The Ulu team members have been fantastic advocates and proponents of the business. Supportive from the first day we met them all the way through our development, helping us think about growth, diversity, and using data in decision-making.
Doing this work you need a tremendous combination of head and heart, you need the analytics but you also need passion and the belief and that’s what I found with Ulu.
