Harlem Capital Partners is a New York-based minority-owned early-stage venture capital firm founded by managing partners Henri Pierre-Jacques and Jarrid Tingle, alongside venture partners John Henry and Brandon Bryant. They launched with a mission to change the face of entrepreneurship by investing in 1,000 diverse founders over the next 20 years.
The firm is seeking to raise $25 million for its first fund and won’t disclose how much it has raised. Private-equity firm TPG Capital announced a minority stake in Harlem Capital last month and became a limited partner in its first pooled fund.
“In its short lifespan, HCP has established itself as a go-to partner for minority founders and women-led businesses, many who are providing new and innovative solutions to different problems,” Jon Winkelried, Co-CEO of TPG, said in a statement. “Henri and Jarrid are incredibly talented investors whose mission, strategy, and vision expand the broader TPG ecosystem in a compelling and differentiated way.”
