Leading Software Investor, Hg, Partners with PowerUP to Help Give Atlanta Disadvantaged Youth a Hand Up

We are very excited to announce Hg Capital as a “Black Belt” level sponsor! Hg’s contribution is enough to fund all of our existing students for a full year!  

PowerUP’s focus on core values complements the work Hg supports through The Hg Foundation, a charitable foundation supporting those who may otherwise experience barriers to access STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).

As software focused investors, Hg also values the PowerUP business model in how the organization gathers and utilizes data. The data that PowerUP collects can be used to better understand the efficacy of martial arts training in promoting PowerUP’s core values, and contributing to the lifelong success of its scholarship students.

Hg is a leading investor in software and services, focused on backing businesses that change how we all do business. Deep technology expertise, complemented by vertical application specialization and dedicated operational support, provides a compelling proposition to management teams looking to scale their businesses. Hg has funds under management of over $30 billion, with an investment team of over 140 professionals, plus a portfolio team of more than 35 operators, providing practical support to help our businesses to realize their growth ambitions. Based in London, Munich and New York, Hg has a portfolio of over 35 software and technology businesses, worth over $60 billion aggregate enterprise value, with over 35,000 employees globally.
