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) that helps investors and founders find each other in a more efficient way.
Use the search bar and filters to get a list of the most relevant investors for you. Some investors allow direct outreach via email or an online form. Others prefer warm intros, so you will have to find a way to reach them.
VC firms, angels, and accelerators can get listed for free on OpenVC. Just click "Add a fund" and fill the form. Give us 24 hours for verification, and you're good to go!
Yes, it's really free. We rely on donations and affiliation links to keep the project running. Please consider donating on our Ko-fi page: https://ko-fi.com/openvc.
Just email steph [at] openvc [dot] app. We always reply.
