Early Stage And Growth Investing

Blue Heron invests in entrepreneurs first and foremost.  Great entrepreneurs create great businesses that make great products that meet market and customer needs or make new markets and create new customers.  And we believe that great entrepreneurs also often make their own luck.  So for us at Blue Heron it all starts with the person.  Do they want us as a partner and do we want to partner with them on the journey of building a new business?  That is the question for us every time.
