CARY – Cofounders Capital, an early-stage software venture fund in Cary,  and Hatcher+, a unique, data-driven venture firm, will partner to co-invest in start-ups accepted into the Cofounders Capital Accelerator.

The partnership will provide significant additional capital and resources to portfolio companies in the program as well as access to Hatcher’s proven AI-based platform to assist in assessing investment opportunities and track performance.  Portfolio companies will also have access to the extensive Hatcher+ global network.

“The committed Hatcher+ funds will be another significant and unique tool for our accelerator because it enables us to fund market research and prototype development for ventures that might not yet meet the criteria for a Cofounders Capital Fund II investment” says David Gardner, managing partner.

Founded in 2016, Hatcher+ is a data-driven venture investment firm that recently announced the launch of H2, a $125 million early stage investment vehicle. The Hatcher+ platform uses AI and machine learning-based technologies to identify early-stage opportunities in partnership with leading accelerators and investor groups, worldwide.

Hatcher+ has selected and partnered with some of the most effective and successful accelerators from across the globe including Blue Chilli in Australia and Fashion Technology Accelerator in Milan.  Cofounders Capital’s inclusion into this network, allows Hatcher+ to seed some of the best companies originating in North Carolina.

Cofounders Capital is a Cary-based early stage fund focused on software ventures in North Carolina.
