NFX operates as a seed investor. We believe that creating something of true significance starts with seeing things others do not. As Founders, we reinvented industries with this mindset. As investors, our approach is no different. We do this by asking ourselves one question - ideally, how should the startup experience work for Founders, both NFX and the whole ecosystem? Our lens is always through the eyes of the Founder. Our approach is to first build an early stage experience for all Founders that is powered by more software. Second, to bring the founders we back exponential yet little-known techniques for network effects and growth. Third, to make visible the typically unseen methods of technology's most impactful companies.
