Our Story

 “An entrepreneur is someone who will jump off a cliff and assemble an airplane on the way down.”

–  Reid Hoffman


H.A.L.O. (High Altitude Low Opening) is a tactical skill performed by the special force elites to go from 25,000 ft to a precise landing zone. We recognize that this is like what pioneers at early-stage startups go through to develop their product for regulatory approval and launch. We established HALO Point Solutions to provide precision guidance to these pioneers who dare to jump to make this world a better place.
