Fostering Northwestern's
Next Impactful Startups

Homepage

N.XT specializes in investing in impactful innovations and entrepreneurs. Through seed and Series A investments, N.XT not only invests capital, but strives to add value through various channels and help its portfolio companies succeed.

Northwestern’s N.XT Fund is committed to accelerating the commercialization of University assets by de-risking them to a value inflection point for potential partners, investors, or customers.

Impactful university technologies often run the risk of falling into the proverbial “valley of death” due to lack of funding and other resources. With a mission to fill that need, N.XT focuses its investments on promising faculty-initiated ventures in high growth markets and alternative areas where Northwestern’s innovation portfolio reflects a need.

N.XT is a self-sustaining fund, seeking opportunities that have a high potential to impact society through translational innovation and research. N.XT is agnostic to industry sector and market size.
