NEXTFAB VENTURES

SEED CAPITAL AND PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT SUPPORT FOR HARD-TECH STARTUPS

Do you need funding or product design help? A combination of the two?

We help entrepreneurs build venture-backable startups around hard-tech products

We are a pre-seed stage hardware-focused investor and product development center. Our mission is to provide hard-tech startups with the resources and expertise they need to hit important milestones and raise Series A funding.

NextFab Ventures enables entrepreneurs to develop prototypes fast and effectively through hands-on technical product development support, seed capital, business coaching, and introductions to contract manufacturers, advisors, and investors.
