Entrepreneur First is the world's leading talent investor.

We invest in the world’s most ambitious technologists to help them build impactful tech startups from scratch. Since 2011, we have created over 150+ seed funded startups worth nearly $4 billion, including Tractable, Cleo and CloudNC. EF is backed by Reid Hoffman (founder of LinkedIn), Greylock Partners, Mosaic Ventures and Founders Fund, as well as some of the world's best entrepreneurs.

It once seemed impossible to build companies from scratch. Since 2011, we've built a robust, scalable way to do this. Our method creates some of the most valuable startups produced in Europe and Asia. EF has a unique opportunity to develop the secret to building billion dollar companies from scratch. No other organisation has access to this.

We launched our Paris operations in 2018 and have since invested in more than 40+ French startups, which include Kinetix - enabling creators to turn any video into 3D animation, Fairbrics - producing the first synthetic fabric with a net positive impact on climate change, or 77Foods - crafting high quality, plant-based bacon.
