AngelList

AngelList

AngelList is a U.S. website for startups, angel investors, and job-seekers looking to work at startups.

Created in 2010, AngelList's stated mission is to help startups save the world. AngelList was born out of VentureHacks.com, a website for entrepreneurs created by Babak Nivi and Naval Ravikant.

AngelList currently operates a number of businesses: AngelList Fundraising, AngelList Talent, Product Hunt and Coinlist.

AngelList Fundraising is an investment platform through which they're the most active early-stage investor in the world. AngelList facilitates investments via Syndicates and Angel Funds and has invested over $650M since 2013. They are backed by institutional and individual investors.

AngelList Talent is a free talent marketplace that connects tech companies with prospective employees, often engineers, designers and other startup people. Each year they facilitate over 1M mutual opt-in intros between companies and candidates.

AngelList acquired Product Hunt in 2016. Product Hunt is an internet company started by Ryan Hoover that helps startups launch and find customers. It's also used by established companies for a variety of reasons. Product Hunt continues to run independent of AngelList.

In 2016 AngelList co-created CoinList with Protocol Labs (Filecoin). CoinList is the only platform for cryptocurrency companies to compliantly launch their ICO. Filecoin raised over $200M for their ICO on CoinList. Naval Ravikant is actively involved in the CoinList project.

In 2016, AngelList also spun out Republic, a marketplace focused on enabling startups to be legally crowdfunded by non-accredited investors as a result of changes in the JOBS act. Republic was founded by early AngelList team members Kendrick Ngyuen, and Paul Menchov.
