Founder Centric™
Investment and Venture Capital Platform

 
 

Hurt Capital leverages a proprietary theory on concentrated equity ownership structures. With particular emphasis on founder-run companies, this unique approach is based on intensive research that has reverse engineered the extraordinary success of Berkshire Hathaway – an investment firm well-known for its long-term orientation, ethical disposition, and management-friendly engagements.

Over a decade ago, concentrated equity ownership (CEO) theory predicted the rapid rise of founder-run companies in public markets. In identifying hidden economic efficiencies within Apple, Facebook, Google and Netflix, while paralleling that discovery alongside other economic phenomena under a new theory of the firm, this work displaces the fulcrum of the dominant paradigms in corporate governance theory. 

We take a platform approach to venture capital with a view to actively supporting founders on the path to prominence. This involves an extensive partnership network to help founder-run companies attain rapid international expansion.

Hurt Capital is committed to contributing its research capabilities to enhance global economic growth, particularly within emerging innovation and technology ecosystems.
