Henry John

Voted to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 and Ebony Power 100, John Henry is an entrepreneur and investor. He started his first business at 18, an on-demand drycleaning service for the Film and TV industry in New York City, with clients such as “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “Power” and more. He led the company through its acquisition in 2014 – founding and selling his first business by the age of 21.

He launched Cofound Harlem, a nonprofit incubator, to foster a tech ecosystem north of 96th street in New York City. Cofound Harlem has launched numerous high-growth companies and gained recognition in Fast Company, TechCrunch and Business Insider.

He now serves as a partner at Harlem Capital, a diversity-focused early stage venture capital firm on a mission to change the face of entrepreneurship. 

You can see him as the host on Viceland’s latest show, “Hustle,” executive produced by Alicia Keys and focused on helping scrappy entrepreneurs grow their business to the next level.
