What does Hockeystick cost?
It’s free for startups!
How will I know if I’m a good match?
Does Hockeystick provide or help with fundraising directly?
We only help you in your fundraising by connecting you with a funder or vendor.
Does connecting with a funder guarantee my startup will receive funding?
No, it does not. We suggest matches and facilitate introductions once both parties agree to connect. It is up to you and the funder to then continue the conversation after having been introduced.
How is my data protected?
Can other startups see my company's financial information?
No. All private company information given during onboarding will remain confidential and only visible to funders and partners with who you want to connect.
Why can’t I see any more matches to pick from?
We want to make sure the choices you make matter and that funders don’t get overwhelmed with recommendations, you will be able to make additional choices after 24 hours.
I’m a startup and I expressed interest in connecting with X funder, how can I know when I’ll get a message back?
You can only know when a funder is interested in your startup when they agree to connect with you.
I'm trying to sign up but it won’t accept my email?
You need to use an email address that matches your website domain, which is a requirement to create an account. Once you are able to obtain your own email domain, we’d love to have you onboard!
Does Hockeystick support private lending?
No, we do not work with individual investors or lenders, only funds (and organizations).
I'm a funder with multiple different funding products, can Hockeystick accommodate them all?
Yes, different funding products can be accommodated and set to target various different types of companies based on their location, revenue, and more.
I’m a funder, can startups contact me even if they don’t match with me?
Startups will not be able to contact you unless you've both agreed to connect. If you both agree to connect, we will send an email introducing you to each other.
How do I delete my Matchmaking account?
If you'd like to delete your Matchmaking account, simply email email@example.com and we will remove your information from the platform.
