WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
We believe AI is fundamentally redefining the way humanity lives. We are investing in:
Everything that enables AI – deep tech entrepreneurs and tinkerers who are redefining what is possible. This could include core developments in algorithms, but also sensors, new computing paradigms, chips, distributed storage systems and much more than we cannot yet imagine.
Everything enabled by AI – as our ability to collect, ingest, and process data increases, we are able to use technology to make more and more impactful decisions. Entrepreneurs are rethinking the way that technology intersects with our lives, produces our goods, and helps us make decisions. We believe a new generation of companies will inevitably arise as a result of these changes.
We invest in entrepreneurs from around the world who are redefining the future through the tools of artificial intelligence, today
