NFX is a Pre-Seed and Seed venture firm based in San Francisco. As Founders ourselves, we built 10 companies with more than $10 billion in exits. These exits spanned multiple industries and geographies. We invest, build software, and distribute content to help early-stage Founders unlock speed, defensibility, and edge.
