In the Pipeline

Ford X is constantly investigating and prototyping new ventures. These projects are kept under wraps so early stage teams can learn, iterate and return to the drawing board as much as they need to. Stay tuned for updates.

Our Approach

We believe in a principled approach to building and growing new ventures

Our Approach

 

 

It starts with an aspirational and specific vision statement

Why does the venture exist?

What direction does the venture want to work toward?

What does it want to achieve in the future?

What does the long-term victory look like?

Now, Near, Far

 

 

Successful ventures must pass through three gates
