AngelList Calendar
Year In Review

AngelList is the network for startup success. Across our family of companies—AngelList Venture, AngelList Talent, and Product Hunt—startups of all sizes have found the tools they need to grow.

In 2018, we reached over $1 billion in assets under management, supported two million candidates in their job search, and helped makers launch over 20,000 products that will define the future of tech. Over 75% of startups that announced seed funding from leading U.S. investors in the last two years have raised, recruited, or launched on AngelList or Product Hunt. We can't wait to share what we're building next.

AngelList provides access to capital and infrastructure so I can move beyond advice and invest in great startups. I've deployed almost $10M since 2016, and wrote my first $1M check in the past year.
Immad Akhund
Founder & CEO of Mercury
AngelList gave me a new way to connect world-changing startups to critical early-stage capital, such as my investment in Zymergen’s seed round in 2014. The platform allows me to focus on making investments and supporting founder teams.
Dr. Jenny Rooke
Managing Director at Genoa Ventures
Even though we are some of the most prolific investors around, with over 400 portfolio companies in over 20 countries, AngelList has been able to handle this volume and complexity with ease.
