The phrase “value-add” is used and abused by nearly every modern day VC firm. At VFF, we believe in action, not talk, which resulted in the newly established VFF Community. It is with genuine intentions that we set out to build VFF as a “service-based” firm where we attempt to support our founders through advice, connections, recruitment, or just a shoulder to cry on. Founders have the opportunity to communicate directly with any VFF team member or others in VFF portfolio companies. We leverage the collective knowledge of the VFF portfolio to ensure that when someone encounters a problem, the people who have solved it in the past are only one Slack message away. By creating this community, we hope to promote knowledge sharing within our network while also throwing interesting, and sometimes outrageous, events.
