Michael Saloio, Founding Partner

I’m Mike, co-founder & CEO of Huddle, a jobs platform that connects startups with elastic design and build teams. Before Huddle, I ran product and design studios and consulted with ecosystems like Techstars, Expa, Human Ventures, Samsung NEXT, Betaworks, WeWork Labs, Create, XRC Labs, and more. I was also employee #1 at SuperPhone, where I helped Ryan Leslie raise $1M from Ben Horowitz and Betaworks. Since 2014, I’ve helped 100+ startups raise >$500M in venture capital.

Before startups, I was an investment analyst covering tech companies. I’ve worked on capital raises from pre-Seed → IPO/M&A, and I’ve been featured in The WSJ, American Banker, Fortune Magazine, and more.

Outside work, I’m a meditator, writer, music producer, podcast host, and community builder. I live between Brooklyn, NY, and Miami, FL.

I document my learnings on building, investing, and life here.
