And it was this week revealed the company had joined forces with the Duke and Duchess' Archewell Foundation.
In a LinkedIn post, the company said: "Earlier this year, Invisible Hand joined Archewell on their mission to drive systemic culture change across all communities, one act of compassion at a time."
Genevieve Roth was previously the director of Creative Engagement for Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidency campaign.
After graduating from Emerson College and the Columbia Journalism School Publishing Course, Ms Roth also worked with a US government initiative launched by former President Barack Obama and wife Michelle: Let Girls Learn.
And the link adds fuel to speculation that Meghan is keen to get into politics after the 39-year-old former actress and Harry, 36, quit the Royal Family.
It comes as…
- The couple's chief-of-staff left her post after 11 months
- Prince Harry scored a job with a Silicon Valley startup
- The Sussexes admitted they did not marry three days before their Windsor wedding after claiming they had exchanged vows early in the Oprah interview
- Meghan and Harry hired a Hollywood producer to head up their Netflix and Spotify productions
- A spoof website joked Prince Harry was running for the Vice Presidency
The couple have already started speaking out about politics, urging Americans to vote in the recent US election.
And earlier this year, it was claimed the duchess could follow prominent actor Arnold Schwarzenegger into politics after holding a secret meeting with a top Democrat.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex risked a row in Britain by spending an hour chatting to the influential California Governor, Gavin Newsom.
But in California, where the couple are living, politicians are hoping the former actress will follow the “well-worn path” of Arnie into politics.
Mike Trujillo, a prominent Democratic strategist, last month told The Times: "She’s doing everything that’s appropriate and allowed given her new position but she’s definitely putting her toe in the water.
“And once your toe is in the water your whole foot is in and next thing you know you are knee-deep and then you are fully in.”
Mr Trujillo believes Meghan's foundation for mental health services and pledge to raise awareness of “racial and economic justice in the tech sector” could provide the jumping off point for a career in politics.
This includes the couple inviting politician and activist Stacey Abrams – credited with helping Joe Biden win in Georgia – to speak on their Spotify podcast.
It came weeks after Meg described the battle between Donald Trump and Joe Biden as “the most important election of our lifetime”.
She said: I know what it's like to have a voice, and also what it's like to feel voiceless. I also know that so many men and women have put their lives on the line for us to be heard."
She added: “When we vote, our values are put into action and our voices are heard.
"Your voice is a reminder that you matter. Because you do. And you deserve to be heard.”
And last year it was claimed Meghan would "seriously consider" running for US president one day.
"One of the reasons she was so keen not to give up her American citizenship was so she had the option to go into politics," an insider close to the couple reportedly told Vanity Fair's Katie Nicholl.
"I think if Meghan and Harry ever gave up their titles she would seriously consider running for president."
It comes as the couple hired a Hollywood producer to head up their Netflix and Spotify productions.
They have seen other employee moves, with their chief-of-staff this week revealed to be leaving her post.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry has snared a job as chief impact officer with a Silicon Valley start up.
