HAX is the world’s first and most active pre-seed program focused on hard tech startups. HAX helps founders tap into the world’s premier ecosystems for real-world product development, manufacturing and fundraising.

The flagship HAX program provides 6-months collaborative residency, hands-on engineering support, and an initial investment package of $250,000-500,000 with millions available in SOSV follow-on funding. Over 290 startups have graduated from the program since 2012 with cumulative value of over $9 billion. HAX graduates have raised nearly $2 billion, including $145 million from SOSV.

HAX partnered last year with the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) in a five-year, $25 million project to open a state-of-the-art HAX facility in Newark, New Jersey

The program hosts 20 companies per year and focus on startups in manufacturing, healthcare, and climate tech. HAX has 24 companies on the SOSV Climate Tech 100 and 37 companies on the SOSV Health Tech 100. Among HAX’s best known alumni are OpentronsR-ZeroYouibotSmartex, and Avidbots.
