🦅 Hawk Hill Ventures - Q2 & Q3 Investments (2023)
Our highlights from Q2 and Q3
With Labor Day behind us, we’re beginning to accept that summer is coming to an end. And while summer is traditionally a slower time for venture, we have continued to meet with and invest in great founders building at the intersection of technology, ambition, and capability. Here’s a look at the latest additions to the Hawk Hill Ventures portfolio:
A revolutionary stride in home services, SmartRoof is redefining roofing with AI and drones. By digitally integrating everything from inspection to service delivery, they are making roof management not only efficient but also economical. A nod to our belief in a holistic and digital-first approach to home services.
Product onboarding is vital for customer activation and retention, yet its development often sidetracks teams from their core goals. With Frigade's powerful components, developers can build adaptable onboarding experiences. The result: developers can concentrate on advancing their product roadmap, ensuring customers not only start but stay.
Kernel is building better developer tools for open-core companies. They simplify the process of provisioning infrastructure for hosted offerings, allowing open-source developers to spend less time wrangling servers and more time creating exceptional open-source software.
With the vast amounts of data generated in biotech — set to be the largest of any industry by 2025 — there is a critical demand for tools that bridge the gap between life sciences and cutting-edge technology. MantleBio stands at this juncture, merging the realms of biotechnology and software engineering. Their mission: to create modern data engineering software that empowers the biotech industry, enabling profound advancements in human health and longevity.
Writing automated tests for web applications has traditionally been a tedious endeavor. Contour revolutionizes this, allowing engineers to generate end-to-end UI tests using natural language descriptions. This intelligent system, powered by state-of-the-art generative AI, ensures robust and reliable tests, freeing developers to focus more on product innovation.
As we step into the last quarter of 2023, our optimism remains high. We're on the lookout for innovative solutions in proptech, fintech, infrastructure, and developer tools. If you're a founder operating in any of these areas, we'd love to chat. Above all, we remain committed to supporting our portfolio companies in their journeys to grow and make an impact.
A heartfelt thank you to our community — friends, family, and supporters, for your unwavering faith as we continue to back startups that we believe will make our world just a little bit better.
