The H/F Co-op
Now launching in new locations!

The Hackers/Founders Co-op coaches startup founders through a personalized 100+ item checklist. The agenda points founders toward product and pitch development to prepare them for fundraising.

When fundraising launches, the Co-op team works with you to set up meaningful contacts with our large curated pool of investors.

Hook

While the average survival rate for startups that participate in an incubator is only 50%, 80% of Co-op companies are alive and kicking. At present, H/F Co-op portfolio companies have a net worth of over $400 million and have raised over $60 million.

You get a personalized regimen to address the specific issues of your startup.

This is why the Co-op doesn’t have an end date – we want to sit down with you and get an in-depth understanding of where your company stands, what’s missing, what hurts, and what kind of path must be built to fix it.

Fundraising

As a member of the Co-op, you get dedicated time with H/F team members to help you perfect your business plan and pitch deck. With regular pitch practice throughout the program, you'll be in top form when the introductions take place with potential investors or acquirers.
