Jonathan Hakakian

SoundBoard Angel Fund

Jonathan Hakakian is Managing Director of SoundBoard Angel Fund, which he co-founded in 2012 in order to build a community of experienced entrepreneurs to formally invest in early-stage companies outside the major city centers.

The fund was born from Jonathan’s involvement in the Mid-Atlantic startup scene (Washington, DC to NYC), along with his experience in coaching entrepreneurs and consulting into their organizations. From his extensive knowledge of the entrepreneurial journey and general business strategy, he has been able to work with entrepreneurs to structure atypical agreements and provide innovators with a valuable network of investors.
