We invest to change society.
Instead of asking, “What do you do?” we ask entrepreneurs: “What needs to be done?” We empower founders obsessed with creating community-rooted solutions to our country’s biggest problems.
How we support your goals
Flexible and patient capital
We place your ability to achieve your vision at the heart of everything we do. There are no preset rules on investment maximization. Instead, we provide a flexible and adaptive process focused on each entrepreneur’s goals for the journey ahead.
Valuing monetary and social returns
Positive societal change is just as vital as achieving business success. We direct resources where they are most needed and evaluate success not just on monetary gains, but on the level of social impact.
Tailored access to a highly integrated network
Growth looks different for every start-up. We leverage our network thoughtfully— connecting you with the right consultants, advisors, investors, and customers to help you achieve your next stage.
Societal transformation doesn’t happen overnight. At STVL, we care less about short-term gains and more about the long-term success of our partner entrepreneurs.
Commitment to staying open, humble, and curious
We’re invested in tackling the toughest social issues, but we don’t have all the answers. We cultivate a judgment-free environment where radical ideas are celebrated, assumptions are challenged, and learning never ceases.

We’re not business people; we’re social change people. The STVL team represents a diverse professional background rooted in the very problems we wish to solve. Our unique bench of team members and the fresh perspectives they bring allows us to chart an entirely new, non-traditional paradigm for investing.
