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 10-15 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 helped in the past can be seen
NFX 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 program, office hours are open five days per week and the companies can meet with the partners as often as it makes sense. There are also weekly Class dinner sessions on Thursdays from 4-8 pm where all the companies come together to meet and share knowledge. And there are additional optional group sessions covering specific topics. Each company will be introduced to additional expert Advisors in the Bay Area with the ability to help with the specific challenges they face.
The NFX program takes place in the SF Bay Area. We meet in downtown Palo Alto and SOMA in SF.
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 lasts two weeks and includes prep sessions, two class dinners, and office hours.
The NFX program ends with the NFX Conference Thursday Sept 17, where each company presents in front of investors, journalists, and top potential hires.
