Pi Campus

Pi Campus is an early-stage venture capital firm investing in AI startups. We love founders who take on big slow moving industries with state-of-the-art technologies.

The hacknight is usually a hackparty that takes place at Pi Campus, where we converted 7 luxury villas in fully equipped workplaces. Due to COVID-19, this year’s event will be online.
