Let's Start Now.

You can be a hacker and a historian. You can be a techno-utopian and an aesthete. We want to back minds that stretch laterally and not just linearly. We want to back the coder who not only knows what she’s doing, but why. Maybe that’s you.

Xfund is a pioneering partnership between some of the country’s most successful venture capital firms and some of the world’s best research universities in the United States and abroad. Xfund was co-founded in 2014 and co-managed by Patrick Chung and Hugo Van Vuuren. Xfund is now co-managed by Patrick Chung and Brandon Farwell, two friends and partners who have worked together for over a decade, alongside our extended investment and university teams.

Whether you’re a student, faculty member, staff, alumni — or perhaps you’re entirely self-taught — so long as you have a curious mind and an ability to execute, we’re interested.

We can’t wait to hear from you.
