Welcome to Hack VC

A venture capital firm focused on early-stage startups

Paying it forward to help entrepreneurs realize their dreams

How we're different

We exist to serve you, the entrepreneur. And we've been in your shoes -- having built, acquired, and sold several companies. We're able to advise you in most areas of running a company, and specialize in asking the right questions to help you navigate blind-spots.

Additionally, most startups have challenges hiring engineers, and we can help solve that via hack.summit(), the world's largest programming event, that we manage, with a community of 150k+ members. For technical startups, we can help with distribution of your API, service, or blockchain via this community.
