The Gideon Hixon Fund

The Gideon Hixon Fund utilizes and expands on the experience of six generations of family business. Since 1850, the Hixon Family has been building businesses and providing capital to exceptional entrepreneurs. We invest in passionate, committed people, who have ideas that change the world for the better. We take a traditional approach based on the belief that an investment is an alignment, and the best success is a shared one.

The Hixon Family via the Gideon Hixon Fund, its predecessors Midland Investment Company, HixVen, and its partnership with Southwest Venture Partners, have had the opportunity to be part of some great success stories including AMP, Apple Computer, American Solar King, Dell Computer, Xiotech, Medior/AOL, Security Dynamics, CORSolutions and Instructure. The Gideon Hixon Fund has a simple and lasting investment philosophy: we want to invest in companies we know and like, along with partners we respect and trust. To do this, we have created our “Good Partner” model where we invest in early stage venture capital managers, work closely to help them be successful and then identify those opportunities within their portfolios that best fit with our criteria. We have a deep admiration for the courage it takes to build a business, and we strive to do our best to help our managers and entrepreneurs reach their goals.

If you are a venture capital manager or company that wants to partner with the Gideon Hixon Fund to revolutionize an industry and make the world a better place, then we look forward to hearing from you.
