We’ve partnered with great investors and powerful platforms — including AngelList, Product Hunt (our sister company), and Sequoia Capital — to help Hyper companies break through the noise. And more are on the way.
At Hyper, we focus a lot of energy on the venture part of venture capital. Why? Because more than a billion dollars is invested into startups every single day. There’s a ton of money out there. But to successfully build, grow, and run a company in today’s ecosystem, founders need a way to break through the noise.
Investment from Hyper is kind of like a membership — it comes with access to our partners, experts, and mentors, plus an 8-week-long founder program designed to help startups with the things they need most: distribution, community, mentorship, talent, and funding.
If you’re a founder at an early-stage startup, or if you’re thinking about starting one, you should apply here to join Hyper’s Fall season.
We’ll be sharing more about the program and Hyper’s benefits in the coming weeks and months.
$300k for 5%, on a SAFE. We accept applications four times per year, and the 8-week-long founder program runs during Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer.
We invest in a small number of companies because we know how to provide intimate, hands-on help that can have a measurable impact.
If we accept your application, you’ll get funding immediately. Then we’ll work with you on your participation in the founder program.
Where does the Hyper founder program take place?
The founder program is designed to be almost entirely virtual. The first season of the program will launch with a kick-off event in San Francisco. We highly recommend companies attend, but it is not required. All other Hyper events are virtual.
Do you invest in companies outside of the United States?
Yes. We invest in companies from all over the world, and believe in putting everyone on equal footing regardless of geographic location. However, there are some countries we cannot invest in, due to legal complexities.
Regardless, we ask that all Hyper companies incorporate in Delaware if they have not already done so. (We’ll help you with this.)
When does it start?
Hyper's Fall 2021 season begins on September 10th.
If we accept your application, you’ll get funding immediately. Then we’ll work with you to get ready for the founder program.
What markets do you focus on? Does Hyper have a thesis?
We are pretty market-agnostic and will invest in anything that seems promising to us. That being said, we are always looking at companies through the lens of how we can help with our unique distribution and community features.
Hyper is made up of operators, investors, and partners who have been through everything — from the very early stages of forming a startup to growing and managing large teams with billions in revenue.
We’ve built an impressive team of advisors, mentors, and partners to help Hyper companies build, launch, and grow — and we’re just getting started.
Hyper accepts applications four times per year. Right now we are accepting applications for the Fall season, which starts September 10th. Apply by midnight Pacific Time on August 10th to be considered.
Who should apply?
We’re looking for ambitious founders starting consequential companies. We are pretty market-agnostic, meaning we invest in lots of industries and if we see a good idea or great founders, we’ll go for it.
So if you’re a founder at an early-stage startup, you should apply. We look forward to hearing from you.
