We want to hear from you!

As a startup, we know resources are constrained. We also know that cutting through the noise of prospective early-stage investors is a slog. Here are the ways we build relationships:

  • Whether coming from a warm referral or another source, we encourage founders to complete the below form.
  • One of our core tenants is to respect founders time; we commit to responding to every inquiry within one-weeks’ time.
  • When meeting with the VFF team, expect a conversational approach to a “pitch” (i.e. two-way dialogue) – pitch deck optional.
  • We strongly encourage two-way diligence; talk to our founders and ask them the tough questions.
  • Think you’re a good fit? Please fill in the form below and we will be in touch soon. We look forward to hearing from you!
