Hypepotamus was born to build community in the tech startup scene. As entrepreneurs navigate the uncertainty of 2020, we are here to be a resource and showcase companies, organizations, and individuals who are providing key services during this time.

We are compiling a list of essential resources for startups looking to grow, scale, and/or pivot, as we return from the Labor Day Weekend, look ahead and settle into the rest of the fall season. We will be continuously updating this page, so reach out if there are resources you would like to add!
