The Quantum Inspired Technology Fund

2xN was founded by Lars Fjeldsoe-Nielsen, a Silicon Valley operator turned investor, and Niels Nielsen, an entrepreneur and pioneer investor in Quantum Computing to bring the true, high-growth value of network effects to early-stage founders.

The 2xN team offers a unique “best of both worlds” approach that merges the platform service typically seen from institutional investors with the kind of dedicated, hands-on trusted support of angels.

We’re proud to have invested in 23 companies, across two continents: the US and Europe. We have co-invested and seen follow-on rounds with firms such as Accel, Andreessen Horowitz, Balderton Capital, Founders Fund, Kleiner and Sequoia as well as more than 85 angels.

Approach

The currency of networking is giving, not taking.

The competitive landscape in European VC is undergoing a seismic shift – triggered by the arrival of US funds and fuelled by the evolving market conditions that are playing out before us. Today, European investment decisions are made at a pace not previously dreamt of. Founders evaluate potential investors based on merit and referrals from other founders. Family offices and alliances of smaller funds are increasingly the preferred choice by founders.

Led by Valley Veteran, Lars Fjeldsoe-Nielsen and entrepreneur and pioneer investor in Quantum Computing, Niels Nielsen, 2xN represents the future of investing.

We back the founders having the greatest impacts in society as we push towards a quantum future. The firm invests in and supports the visionaries solving problems across some of life’s most vital sectors and services – education, work, mobility, marketplaces and deep tech (quantum).

  • We place collaboration ahead of deal domination.
  • We swap generalist and catch-all deals in favour of targeting society’s most important sectors.
  • We put the collective success of our partnerships and portfolio ahead of the successes of individuals.
  • We move at the pace today’s markets and founders demand and bring together deep and specific sector experience to push forward the sectors of the future.

Our mission is to create positive network effects for founders and investors. Our “best of both worlds approach” merges the professionalism and processes of a large fund with the agility and personal nature of super angels. The approach gives founders access to the reach of a platform of services and network of people. The core platform is built on an alliance of like-minded though diverse people with operating experience. All while becoming plugged into networks of fellow founders from within the same sectors, all of whom are working to solve some of society’s biggest challenges.

In this way, 2xN is creating an alliance of independent, trusted hands-on investors and operators, a venture capital API.
