HRV is pleased to announce some updates to its team. Ryan Waddington, has joined Arsenal Venture Partners as a Partner where he will focus on deal sourcing and working with Arsenal portfolio companies. These responsibilities are closely correlated and well aligned with his current HRV responsibilities, which include two co-investments with Arsenal. While we will miss Ryan’s 100% focus on HRV activities, we are thrilled to work more closely with Arsenal and look forward to continued collaboration with Ryan in his new role.
HRV is also pleased to announce the addition of Sam Hogg as a Venture Partner. Sam is responsible for deal sourcing, portfolio management, and portfolio company support. His expertise spans sectors from the biological sciences to information technology with nearly all activities centered around sustainability and resource economics. Sam is also a venture partner with Open Prairie Ventures, a leading agricultural technology firm.
“We hope to fund another 3-4 deals in the current fund with 1-2 of them in the agriculture technology sector and Sam is the perfect person to spearhead that effort. Sam’s prior entrepreneurial track record also make him a great resource to help add value to our early-stage portfolio companies,” said Tim Streit. “We appreciate all of Ryan’s contributions to date, look forward to working with him for the remainder of this fund, and also welcome Sam as a new Venture Partner”.
