Why we’re joining forces
Together, we’ll be one network where tech companies can fundraise, recruit and launch.

With Product Hunt, we can help companies with their most important transaction: acquiring customers. Companies of all sizes launch products on Product Hunt. Companies like Google, Uber, Instagram, AngelList, Meerkat and Overnight. They love it. And they’ve received over 100M product clicks and views from prospective customers on Product Hunt.
Product Hunt will remain independent
Product Hunt will remain independent. It will maintain its playful, empathic and curious attitude (read their story of how the acquisition came to be).
In the following months, with their community’s input, they’ll introduce new integrations to help companies reach passionate customers.
It’s a great time to be an entrepreneur.
