Nancy Fechnay

CEO, BedrockX

Nancy Fechnay is an accomplished founder, investor, and mentor. She is currently the CEO of BedrockX, a fast growing blockchain project.

Nancy was a Partner at Flight Ventures (the brainchild of Gil Penchina). Nancy launched the first AngelList syndicate in early 2015 out of London. Since then Flight has built the largest online group of investors in the world.

Nancy also mentors for Techstars and the Vatican’s positive impact accelerator, Laudato Si. Nancy invests in high-growth tech companies (Angel through Series A), but is most interested in working with companies that have the potential to positively impact the world through scalable deep-technologies.

Nancy has been a part of the startup investing world for seven years. Starting her career in cleantech venture, Nancy has since worked for top firms, such as Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers, and GE Ventures before becoming a partner at Flight and leading her own angel deals in all things tech.

Passionate about unleashing one’s true potential through the power of community and sharing life’s highs and lows, Nancy co-founded The Inspire Movement with the help of Hephzi Pemberton and Google in London in 2016. The Inspire Movement brings people together to share impactful stories of overcoming life’s greatest challenges in an effort to address the overwhelming problem of mental health in the 21st century.

Nancy regularly speaks at events and advises companies on how to keep adapting and growing through fast-paced change. (Past speaking engagements include SLUSH, Google HQ, CognitionX, Europas, Oslo Innovation Week, GIANT Health, and Websummit.)
