Sarai Bronfeld is an associate at NFX headquartered in Israel. With experience as both an operator and investor, she has an unparalleled ability to discover network effect startups with high growth potential. She also provides critical support for portfolio company Founders. “As the first employee of a startup now going public, I have a deep understanding of the pain and joy of our most important asset,” she says, “our Founders.”
After 3 years of late-stage investments and pre-IPOs, it was the excitement of early-stage investing that led her to NFX in 2021. “The ability to have a big impact is very real when the company is young,” she says. Prior to being an investor, she was an executive at two Israeli startups, growing them by 20x in valuation after she joined.
Sarai finds balance in her urban Tel Avivian life in the outdoors. Having grown up in South Israel, the desert is her favorite place. When she isn’t chasing her son around the house, Sarai enjoys traveling, cooking her world-famous barbecue, DJing, and swimming.
