Hill Ventures, Inc. is the marketing and management company Grant Hill established shortly after he entered the NBA in 1994 to provide oversight of his unique business activities and marketing relationships. Hill Ventures, Inc. is responsible for managing and maintaining Hill’s marketing and promotional activities, community investment and foundation initiatives, web site content and design, real estate portfolio, personal art collection tour, and other off-the-court activities and initiatives.
Grant extended the pursuit of one of his off the court interests by forming a production company and has co-produced two documentary films, "Starting at the Finish Line," chronicling the life of influential and inspirational Duke Track coach and Professor Al Buehler, and "Duke 91 & 92: Back to Back" about the 1991 and 1992 back to back Duke national championship teams. Duke 91 & 92 aired on Turner Sports' truTV in advance of Turner Sports' and CBS Sports' coverage of the 2012 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship, which aired exclusively on TBS, CBS, TNT, and truTV.
Grant also started a private equity mezzanine fund, Penta Capital, investing in well-capitalized, highly profitable businesses that are already servicing Fortune 1000 clients and government agencies meaningfully and at the very highest performance levels in their respective industries. Additionally, Grant recently became a Subway franchisee, and will be opening three Subway stores in underserved communities in Washington, DC. It is Grant's hope that these Subway stores will create jobs, attract other retailers, and offer healthier food options to underserved urban communities.
