Meet the Fabric
Family

We think and operate like founders, not investors. Fabric is the baby we’ve all dreamed about bringing to life, and we are committed to making it a success: as a community, a platform, and an investment partner to the world’s boldest entrepreneurs.

Investments we made venture-style

 

Investments we made personally

 

Investments that *almost* were that haunt us at night…
