Operating under the belief that execution solves all problems, XYZ is a venture firm that invests in early-stage founders to help them go faster. We aim to support entrepreneurs in building enduring companies in fintech, enterprise and tech-forgotten industries such as insurance and the public sector. We primarily back talented founders at the earliest stages of company building — people who have discovered a key insight and have an unfair advantage from “doing the work” or based on their own lived experience.
XYZ is named for founder Ross Fubini’s great Grandfather Guido Fubini who was a leading mathematician working with Albert Einstein. It’s a nod to the math that drives technological innovation. Concepts like position, velocity, and acceleration are as critical to startup founders as they are to mathematical proofs. We believe that building a business is an equally complex endeavor with a number of variables working in relation to each other. We specialize in helping our companies determine what to build and with whom, ascertain who their initial customers are and why, and connect them with the best people to raise subsequent funding to go faster.
