As an early stage technology investment fund, Fortify leveraged the proven experience of our team and our networks to provide portfolio companies with the community and the capital that they need to grow and succeed.
Fortify was founded in 2011 and is managed by serial entrepreneurs and experienced angel investors.
The Fort accelerated 17 companies since January 2012 in Washington DC. As Fortify grew and evolved we focused more exclusively on the future of the firm and on nurturing our current portfolio. The journey of the entrepreneurs at The Fort is now available as a documentary called Startupland. The Startupland experience includes a video series (six episodes) of the authentic entrepreneurship journey and an online curriculum for learning the basics of starting a business.
The Fort Accelerator Program was captured on film and Startupland was created. Starupland is a compass to guide you down the path of entrepreneurship and features the real stories of those that have taken action and embarked on their founder journey. Their stories and experiences are shared in a documentary, extra video content, case studies and testimonials, and a digital curriculum…all available anywhere in the world.
“One has to passionately believe it is possible to change the industry, to turn it on its head, to make sure that it will never be the same again.” – Richard Branson
