Betaworks Ventures is a product-focused, seed-stage venture capital fund based in New York City and San Francisco.
We invest in surprising new consumer behaviors and trends powered by frontier technologies.
We’re usually among the first institutional investors. We’ve backed more than 100 companies; some that you may have heard of include Giphy, Anchor, Gimlet Media, Product Hunt, Medium, Kickstarter, and Tumblr.
We go deep into new categories through our structured pre-seed program. Areas we’ve focused on include computer vision, voice interfaces, conversational software, and participatory media.
As our name suggests, we like betas – we prefer prototypes to decks. If you have something great, we’d love to speak with you. Contact us here.
