Hines Global Ventures Fund I

Hines Global Ventures Fund I (“HGVF I” or the “Fund”) is a corporate-backed venture capital fund that seeks to tackle disruptors interacting with the real estate world. Backed by the Hines platform, the Fund seeks to identify solutions to challenges the built world faces by leveraging Hines’ global footprint and asset base to identify and de-risk venture investments, aiming to create generational change and bring significant financial returns in the decades ahead.

The Fund has a strong conviction that the current market presents opportune timing for intelligent, early-stage venture investing1.
