Artificial Intelligence is impacting every single sector in our society, and is estimated to create a market capitalization of $87 trillion by 2037.
BootstrapLabs has been making Venture Capital investments since being founded in 2008, and since 2015 we were the first Venture Capital firm to start to invest in an AI first Venture Capital strategy. Since then we have been investing in visionary founders that solve today’s most important and valuable opportunities by applying Artificial Intelligence, and with our 2 first Applied AI funds fully invested and performing at top quartile of US VC funds, today we are actively investing from our 3rd Applied AI ($115M) seed fund.
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, Financial Infrastructure, Digital Infrastructure, and Climate & Energy. We see large opportunities to create efficiencies and value in these areas by applying Artificial Intelligence.

BootstrapLabs has built a moat as an investor in this space for the past 6 years, and we believe we are just in front of the greatest opportunity for applying technology to drive efficiencies, and large disruption of incumbents, paving the way for an estimated $87 trillion Market Capitalization opportunity (read ARK Invest’s report here).
Artificial Intelligence is not a new concept – since Alan Turing envisioned thinking machines, mankind has tried to understand how to imitate the intelligence of the human brain, but the amount of memory and computational power needed to drive real utility has not been viable (in terms of cost/benefit) until the past 5 years.
Ahead is a perfect storm, where opportunities exist as incumbents will continue to acquire AI technology companies, and new category leaders (who are able to create an unfair advantage by applying Artificial Intelligence) will emerge.
BootstrapLabs is an early-stage Venture Capital firm, with a primary focus of investing at the mature seed stage of Applied AI companies, and to keep investing (through our various funds, and vehicles), through the later stages.
We are often the first institutional money, and act as a lead investor in the early stages of emerging technology companies.
BootstrapLabs sources initial investment deal flow through our Investment Platform & Community and our proprietary deal flow from our Venture Studios, giving us a unique deal flow sourcing model in the Applied Artificial Intelligence space, and allowing us to make tangible investment allocations to access the value creation from emerging early-stage innovation to late stage and pre-IPO growth opportunities.
We back founders early and support them through their journey – through our early-stage Applied AI Venture Capital funds
Unique deal flow through our Investment Platform combined with our proprietary deal flow from our Venture Studios – putting us in a unique position to access the AI opportunity
Through our co-investment models we double down through SPVs and SPACs using our unique deal flow
As entrepreneurs ourselves, we know it takes an exceptional team, amplified by a nurturing community, to build successful companies, so we stand by our founders in good times and bad times, because the road to success is paved with setbacks, challenges, and lessons learned from past failures – and building something big is hard.
To provide support and drive thought leadership in the Applied AI space, we have built a community of people that care about applying Artificial Intelligence to solve the most important problems and opportunities.
With more than 40,000 people from over 60 countries contributing to our community, we bring together an extensive number of founders, advisors, service providers, investors and corporates with deep domain knowledge expertise to source deal flow, access emerging innovation and trends, connect with advice and talent to source top quality Applied AI deal flow and support our portfolio companies in their execution.
