Betaworks Camp is a highly selective eleven-week program for early stage startups hosted out of the Betaworks offices in New York City. Each Camp has a specific theme related to our wider investment thesis around emerging technologies and interfaces. (5).gif

Synthetic Camp

Applications for Synthetic Camp, focused on frontier technology in Synthetic Reality, are now open.

There are a number of emergent technologies that interest us: deep tech and tools for creating synthetic media; detection systems for artificially created or modified media; and consumer applications that enable new modes of entertainment or connection.
