Great Founders control their own destiny. So why not give them access to every advantage possible.

NFX is the venture firm for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs. When we invest, Founders have access to our entire team – not just one partner. To extend the power of the network, we also build software, distribute insights, and cultivate an invite-only founder Guild. All of these things have one driving force: to help Founders see what others do not.
