Founded in 2011 by Atlanta-based entrepreneurs, Kevin Wallace, Heath Hyneman and Ashish Mistry, Hypepotamus was originally launched to provide an open collaborative space where entrepreneurs and early startups could intersect, work and build their businesses. Hypepotamus transitioned from a physical space into a digital news publication and community platform in 2014.

As the landscape of the region’s startup ecosystem has grown and evolved, so has Hypepotamus, yet our mission of connectivity has stayed the same. We believe the South is a viable place to attract and retain tech and entrepreneurial talent.
