The visual note-taking tool for learning complex topics.

Heptabase is a visual note-taking tool that helps you learn complex topics. Think about when Notion and Figma have a baby — you can put your notes on whiteboards to record your thinking process. When you search for a note in the future, you can find the whiteboards it appears on to remember how you think with perfect visual memory. Heptabase is backed by Y Combinator, HOF Capital, Kleiner Perkins, Moving Capital, Tonic Fund, and other investors, including the founders of Socialcam, Triplebyte, Codementor, and more.

Alan Chan

I'm the co-founder and CEO of Heptabase. I previously studied CS at Minerva University (2019), Physics & Math at National Taiwan University (2016) and voluntarily dropped out from both of them to pursue better ways of learning. I want to help people learn better, think deeper, and make sense of the massive information in our complex world. To achieve that, we're building the best knowledge tools that will sit on top of a global knowledge discovery platform.

Yeefun Lin

I'm the co-founder and CTO of Heptabase. I studied Sociology at National Taiwan University (2019) and became a software engineer through self-learning. I believe the best knowledge management can produce the greatest ideas. Starting from Heptabase, we want to reinvent the whole knowledge management system.

Ethan Wu

I’m the co-founder and product designer of Heptabase. Starting with my electronics engineering background in university, I ended up becoming obsessed with information design. I have a deep belief that knowledge coming from cross-disciplinary exploration plays a crucial part in human technology progress, and Heptabase’s original design began from here.
