Investment Overview


Artificial Intelligence is impacting every single sector in our society, and is estimated to create a market capitalization of $30 trillion by 2037. BootstrapLabs has been making Venture Capital investments since being founded in 2008, and since 2015 we have been solely focused on investing in visionary founders that solve today’s most important and valuable opportunities by applying Artificial Intelligence.

Our early focus on Artificial Intelligence has given us a head start and unique insights to become a leading Venture Capital firm in what we believe is the biggest value creation opportunity in modern time.

Through our Venture Capital funds, Venture Studios, and growth-stage investment models we are primarily investing in Future of Work (FoW)/Productivity, Mobility, Health, Finance, Cybersecurity, and Energy/Climate. We see large opportunities to create efficiencies and value in these areas by applying Artificial Intelligence.
