US investment in kiwi startup
Some inspiring validation that NZ is generating world class startups with Founders’ Fund investment in Narrative.
American entrepreneur Peter Thiel and his collective of Silicone Valley venture capitalists are investing in Narrative, a New Zealand tech startup that creates apps for streamlining the workflow for professional photographers.
San Francisco-based Founders Fund Pathfinder have contributed to Narrative’s $700,000 seed funding along with Flux Accelerator, which is part of Icehouse Ventures.
Narrative was founded by photographer James Broadbent and software engineer Steffan Levet in 2017, launching less than a year ago with their own “bootstraps” and six months later, a small investment from friends and family.
