A growth mindset
Newfund is an entrepreneurial VC firm dedicated to financing seed-stage startups that are driving global change. It comes with principles.
Pioneer in alternating current
We are constantly looking for founders obsessed with realizing a vision that will have a major impact on the world we live in. We seek to understand entrepreneurs as individuals, appreciate what they are building and play to their strengths. Greatness comes in all forms.

We are a first check fund, so we are often the first institutional capital. We begin by writing $250k to $2M checks in pre-seed and seed rounds and can follow on in subsequent rounds.
We look for founders with global ambition and skin in the game. Similarly, our GPs are the main investors in our own funds. We play the same game as our founders.
We move fast and constantly aim to streamline our investment process to increase velocity. The less time you spend raising, the more you can dedicate to building. This is what creates value for everyone.

We believe in the power of the Growth Mindset. Dr. Carol Dweck of Stanford University has been studying people’s mindsets towards learning for decades. She has found that most people adhere to one of two mindsets: fixed or growth.
Fixed mindsets mistakenly believe that people are either smart or not, that intelligence is fixed by genes. People with growth mindsets correctly believe that capability and intelligence can be grown through effort, struggle and failure. Dweck found that those with a growth mindset embraced challenges, and understood that tenacity and effort could change their outcomes. Learning is everything.

One more thing
We are optimistic. Truly.
We believe that a better world is to come because entrepreneurs will collectively find solutions. They always do.
We think of Nikola Tesla, Louis Pasteur, the Wright Brothers, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk. At some point they were the underdogs trying to fix a great problem. At some point, their vision came to realization. They changed the world. Our job is to find the people who are next.
