We’re damn excited to announce that we’ve acquired Product Hunt.

Product Hunt is the place to discover your next favorite thing. Every day, its global community finds the latest, most interesting products. It’s simply a must-read in technology.

Why we’re joining forces

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

AngelList exists to serve the tech companies that are shaping the world. Over 300K companies and 5M people use our network for transactions like fundraising and recruiting. They’ve raised nearly $500M and been introduced to over 325K candidates.

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.
