Weekend Fund

About the Fund

Weekend Fund invests in early-stage startups. If you have questions about the fund, you're in the right place. :)

So, who are you?

We're a small distributed team, optimistic about the future.

Meet Ryan Hoover

Ryan is the founder of Weekend Fund. He started his professional career as a product manager in the gaming industry. His fascination with technology and behavioral psychology led him to help write Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products.

In 2013 he founded Product Hunt, inspired by his curiosity and a desire to support early stage makers and founders. The company raised capital from Y Combinator, Andreessen Horowitz, and others before joining AngelList. Shortly after the acquisition he started Weekend Fund.

Meet Vedika Jain

Vedika is a Partner at Weekend Fund. She started her professional career at Stripe in 2015, just as they were experiencing explosive growth. Her love for product as a discipline led her to join TrueLayer in London as their first product manager. The company grew from 8 to over 80 people during her tenure.

Her curiosity led her to spend nights and weekends writing “fantasy” investment memos on startups, before joining Weekend Fund. She now writes real memos (among many other things).

What stage do you invest in?

We invest in pre-seed and seed stage startups. The earlier the better!

But we also invest between rounds, post-seed and pre-Series A. If you're planning to raise an A soon, we might be able to connect you with the best investors at that stage. Reach out.

Do you ever invest in late-stage companies?

Occasionally! We've led SPVs in late stage opportunities where we have high conviction and unique access. When we lead an SPV, we invite our LPs alongside strategic operators and founders that can be particularly helpful as the business scales.

Do you lead rounds?


What's your check size?

We typically invest between $100K and $300K.

What industries are you most excited about?

We have opinions, but we're not dogmatic. Instead, we're looking for founders with a strong vision to shape the future.

We invest broadly but we're particularly attracted to companies that are capitalizing on a consumer behavior or technology shift. You can read about a few specific areas we're excited to invest in here.

How do you support founders?

We know how busy founders are and try to be very respectful of their time. For this reason, we avoid asking for agenda-less “coffee meetings” and instead focus our time on specific asks and goals.

We wrote a Founder Manual that goes into more details of how we help and operate.

What do you look for in founders?

We don't invest in resumes. We look for founders that have a bias toward action and unique insight into a market, ideally capitalizing on a shift in consumer behavior technology.
