About Entrepreneur First

Everyone at Entrepreneur First believes it really matters what the world’s most talented people choose to do with their lives. We work every day to be the best place in the world for around 700 high-potential founders a year to meet their co-founder and build a technology startup from scratch.

EF companies include Tractable (Computer Vision, currently valued at $1bn as of June 2021), AccuRx (healthcare communication platform), Magic Pony Technology (AI, acquired by Twitter for a reported $150m), Represent (social commerce, acquired by CustomInk), Aztec Protocol (scalable privacy on blockchain), Cleo (fintech), OpenCosmos (space), CloudNC (manufacturing), Transcelestial (satellite communications) and many more.
