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 impacting the world around us. 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. 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.

As we have followed the evolution of the venture capital industry from a cottage industry to a sought after asset class we have aimed to refine our focus by aligning our investment strategy with the Hixon Family’s core business in real estate at Hixon Properties. Through this specialization we have developed our IARE investment strategy to focus on Innovation Affecting Real Estate.

If you are a venture capital manager or company that wants to partner with the Gideon Hixon Fund to revolutionize the real estate industry, then we look forward to hearing from you.
