What we invest in

Innovative new design tools.

Today’s designers play a more critical role than ever inside their organizations, and they deserve tools and technology that are equal to the challenges they’re tackling. We’re looking for the entrepreneurs who are creating tools to help close this gap and to power the next generation of design.

Plug-ins, apps and design resources.

We are excited to support and recognize talented creators who extend the tools that designers and their teams rely on. We'll be particularly focused on the world-class apps and add-ons being developed for InVision Studio. Our goal is to create an extensive ecosystem intent on giving superpowers to the people designing tomorrow’s digital world.

“If there were a prerequisite for the future successful digital creative, it would be the passion for discovery.”
