Partner, Loyal VC
Kamal Hassan is a founding partner of Loyal VC, a fund with a unique ‘pitch-less’ approach to venture capital investing.

Loyal VC is industry agnostic, and provides non-wealthy entrepreneurs with more equal opportunity by investing small amounts as soon as the ‘friends and family’ stage, before leading or following further financings up to the A round and beyond. Kamal also designs, and has run, programs for Founder Institute, the world’s largest pre-seed accelerator. He has a twenty year career as an entrepreneur and angel investor, and has advised over 300 entrepreneurs. Kamal has also worked as a consultant for Bain & Co, and as an engineer.
