WORDS FROM OUR FOUNDERS
TESTIMONIALS

Why Founders Choose NFC

"I love NFC. They are true mentors with owner/operator expertise. As a female CEO, I have felt included and valued consistently. Many of the core principles around empathy and listening that we employ in our product NFC does naturally. Working with Kirsten, Richard, Will and the whole team, has been an absolute dream and will certainly lead us to success!"
GRIN LORD, PSYD, ABPP | FOUNDER/CEO
“I've worked with NFC for nearly 4 years and since their initial participation in our Seed Round, we've gone on to raise nearly $95m in additional capital. Despite all the new investors and board members around the table, the NFC partnership is still my go to team for the most important decisions I make as CEO. NFC was founded by prior operators, giving them a unique ability to provide counsel in all aspects of business that we've benefited greatly from over the years. Aumni is fortunate to have raised capital from so many great investing institutions and NFC is the standout when it comes to founder support and guidance. When facing our most difficult business decisions, I always reach out to Will and Richard.”
TONY LEWIS | CEO
“….I would argue that NFC does much more. You know this region and you provide a set of services beyond capital that others can not address the way you do. You know the recruiting practices in the region, you are highly networked beyond capital to include personnel resources, and among other things you help raise follow on capital with your extensive network. Basically, you are experts in how to build and operate companies in this most unique part of the country. You have a set of intangibles beyond capital to help founders grow successful businesses.”
THOR CULVERHOUSE | CEO
“NFC saw our vision when we were just a small team in a co-working space in Boulder, and got behind us in the early days of our product. They helped with customer introductions, recruiting, and strategic decision making all the way through to our acquisition by Atlassian. I could not have asked for a better group of mentors and friends to join us on our adventure.”
FLETCHER RICHMAN | FOUNDER & CEO
“I’ve worked with members of the NFC team for over ten years as both operators and investors, and couldn’t be more excited to have them as investors at Claravine. They bring the relationships, expertise and old school integrity that distinguish them from the increasingly crowded venture landscape. I highly recommend every entrepreneur include NFC on their short list of prospective investors.”
VERL ALLEN | CO-FOUNDER & CEO
"Gravwell is a relatively new addition to the NFC portfolio but it's been long enough that the "honeymoon" phase is over, and yet we're still as excited to have them backing our team. Les and the crew have been invaluable sources of advice, connections, and problem-solving positivity that has helped us during the highs and lows of this crazy startup roller coaster. Any startup should consider NFC, but any startup based in the Rockies would be foolish not to."
COREY THUEN | CEO
"Next Frontier Capital has accelerated a vibrant, sophisticated entrepreneurial community in Montana. The partners bring deep and broad experience to their portfolio and have helped massively to connect the northern Rockies with other centers of innovation and capital across the country."
