Note from Joshua Abbotoy and Nathaniel Fischer

Venture is about building the future you want to live in.

"Positively defined, a startup is the largest group of people you can convince of a plan to build a different future." - Peter Thiel, Zero to One

A founder's belief about the world shapes what he bets on and builds—and thus the country we live in.

We focus on early-stage ventures where we can add exceptional value by leveraging our significant proprietary deal flow, our best-in-class intelligence of conservative consumer and institutional demand, and our connections on the right.

Three growing macro threats:
  1. Global disruption and breakdown of trust
  2. Bureaucratic stagnation
  3. Cultural and political alienation
Three themes that define our response:
  1. Household, communal, and national self-determination
  2. Entrepreneurial judgment and skin in the game
  3. American tradition and ideals
Read Nate’s full letter expanding on this thesis.

Our fund invests in category-defining solutions that touch these themes and can be poised for market disruption and success that more isolated responses ("X but for conservatives") struggle to achieve.

Because of our public signal, our growing podcast, our connections across the political and cultural right, and our team's experience, we are uniquely positioned to attract and help founders who take advantage of these themes.

We are confident that these kinds of ventures are poised for outsized returns–precisely because they are inherently disruptive to the status quo—and can ultimately help realize an alternative positive vision for the country we want to live in.

The fund will take positions in companies in the venture and early-growth, typically with valuations of under $100m, and most of its investments will be in the $50k - $1m range. The carry has been designed to be lower-than-market in modest success scenarios, but higher to the extent that the fund sees high upside.

Fifteen percent (15%) after the fund realizes a 1.5X return, with an increase to thirty-five percent (35%) after the fund realizes a 3.0x return.
Admin Fee (annualized)
$2.5k + 0.2% of contributed capital
Fees for each quarterly fund in the Rolling Fund Program will vary based on each quarterly fund’s capital contributions since the fee includes a flat fee component. Last quarter, this fund closed $95k in capital. Learn more about how to estimate your commitment’s fees at our help center.
Fund Lead Commitment
Joshua Abbotoy and Nathaniel Fischer's personal subscription per quarter will be with a quarterly cap of 2% of each quarterly fund's total committed capital in total. Joshua Abbotoy and Nathaniel Fischer will satisfy their GP commitment in part by waiving 100% of management fees otherwise owed to them by the fund.
Special Disclosure
Some of the Fund Leads for the New Founding Venture Fund Rolling Fund (the “Rolling Fund”) also manage a separate growth fund (the “Growth Fund”) with an investment thesis that partially overlaps with the Rolling Fund’s thesis. When, from time to time, a particular investment opportunity is greater than or equal to $500k (i.e., the allocation offered to the Fund Leads is at least $500k), the Fund Leads reserve the discretion to give the entire allocation to the Growth Fund.

Some of the Fund Leads also manage a professional services company which is a business unit of New Founding Corporation (“NFC”). NFC provides paid service to private companies. Portfolio companies of the Rolling Fund may become customers of NFC before or after receiving an investment from the Rolling Fund.

The performance of past deals or a lead investors' track record is not a guarantee of future returns. Venture capital fund investments are inherently risky and illiquid. Such investments involve a high degree of risk and are suitable only for sophisticated and accredited investors.
