Harpoon is a venture capital firm that invests in the best of Silicon Valley and provides strategic advice enabling its portfolio to scale into a multi-trillion-dollar market — the US federal government. Our team invests in commercially focused startups bringing an unparalleled combination of government and venture capital experience.


We invest in Seed and Series A companies building enterprise technologies for massive commercial markets. Rather than leading investment rounds, we invest alongside tier-one venture firms when our unique experience can add strategic value. Given that far more multi-billion-dollar companies are built in the commercial sector than the federal sector, our thesis is not to invest in the next Lockheed Martin or Raytheon, but rather to invest in the next Apple or Amazon.
