NFX is an invite-only guild for digital networks and marketplaces. It runs a three month program in the Bay Area twice per year for 15-20 companies. Companies in the program can be post Series A, post Seed, or pre Seed.

The program covers the unique challenges that face these types of network effect businesses, including marketplace balance and liquidity, network density, retention tactics, growth tactics and strategy, benchmarked KPI’s, rake pricing and other fees, effective access to the platform companies like Facebook, Apple and Google, rapid scaling, etc.

Companies we’ve worked with in the past can be seen here.  NFX Guild companies benefit from joining these companies and their classmates in a trusted guild of entrepreneurs working on similar businesses with similar problems.

Throughout the NFX Guild program, office hours are open five days per week and the companies can meet with the partners as often as it makes sense, typically up to twice per week. For the first few weeks, we also meet as a group twice per week. For the remainder of the weeks, we meet as a group once per week. There are additional optional group sessions covering specific topics. Each company will be introduced - if required - to expert Advisors in the Bay Area with the ability to help with the specific challenges they face.

The NFX program takes place in the Palo Alto area.

The other NFX office is in Israel, in Hertzeliya. Israeli NFX companies get an additional pre-program in Israel to help ensure they are prepared to make the most of the NFX experience in the Bay Area. The pre-program includes prep sessions, a class dinner, and office hours.

The NFX program ends with the NFX Conference & Demo Day, where each company presents in front of investors, journalists, and top potential hires.
