In March 2021, we launched OpenVC on ProductHunt as a humble product with an ambitious mission: creating an open gateway between founders and investors across the world.
Today, OpenVC drives deal flow for 1,000+ VC firms, angel networks, and corporate funds. Every week, over 100 pitch decks are sent through our platform.
Behind the scenes, we're just two indie makers who have fun building stuff and working together.
OpenVC is radically free and open. Founders will always be able to search for VCs for free. In return, VCs will always be able to receive pitch decks for free.
We're also considering sustainable ways to monetize sometimes in the future. Maybe a paid API? Maybe a sponsored newsletter? We'll see, no rush.
As indie makers, we also believe in being transparent and accountable for everything we do, so we publish our live traffic data for all to see. Check our Open Startup page (available soon).
Hey, that's us !
OpenVC is also made possible by individual contributors who graciously help us with time and data. Without them, nothing would be possible.
Thanks guys, we love you!

OpenVC is an open resource (think Wikipedia) where VCs can claim their investment thesis. By doing so, VCs receive less spam from clueless founders. They also drive highly-qualified deal flow. In return, it makes life easier for founders (yes, it matters).
"Verified data" is reliable. It has been provided by the funds or added by us. The rest of the data is crowdsourced so less reliable. Use your discretion.
Yes, it's really free. We rely on your donations to keep the project running. To support OpenVC, please donate on our Ko-fi page: https://ko-fi.com/openvc.
