About us

Based in Silicon Valley, A.J. Ventures was founded by Hiruy Amanuel; an entrepreneur with approximately 5 years of capital market experience with a focus on the Financial and Consumer sectors.

For over five years, Hiruy and fellow Managing partner Allison Littlefield have been investing in seed and early-stage companies. Typical investment sizes range from $50K to $500K.

A.J. Ventures is primarily a regional investor with a concentration on mission-driven companies. For these companies, the pursuit of growth and revenue almost naturally produce societal benefits.

We focus on seed stage as well as investing in existing companies; providing the collateral to facilitate the funding for these companies in exchange for a success fee, equity in the company is funded, or a hybrid of both.
Our sector focus adjusts from time to time in accordance with changes in the capital markets.
