Horizon 3 | Venture Studio

Startup founders that unlock billion dollar business opportunities hidden within large enterprises

About us

H3 was co-founded by Leonard Speiser, a seasoned and serial entrepreneur who built Clover, a point-of-sale system that processes over $275 billion a year. A significant part of Clover's success hinged on strategic early partnerships with major enterprises, an experience that inspired the inception of H3.

We turn the cost of doing business into growth opportunities for large enterprises. Recognizing that processes are time-consuming, we step in as builders, engineers, and founders to turn parts of your operations from cost centers into revenue growth. With revenue comes investment, speed and world class quality.

Take Amazon Web Services as an example. It had nothing to do with selling books or shipping products. It was a cost center flipped into a major value contributor for Amazon. Our goal is to uncover similar transformative opportunities for our clients.
