Artificial Intelligence is impacting every single sector in our society, and is estimated to create a market capitalization of $87 trillion by 2037 according to ARK-Invest research.
BootstrapLabs has been making Venture Capital investments since being founded in 2008, and in 2015 was one of the first Venture Capital firms to invest with 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.
Our early focus on Artificial Intelligence has given us a head start and proprietary insights to become a leading Venture Capital firm in what we believe is the biggest value-creation opportunity in modern times.
Through our Venture Studios and Venture Capital funds, we are primarily investing in the 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 8+ 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 we believe 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 on investing at the mature seed stage of Applied AI companies, and keeps investing through the growth 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 throughout their journey
Deal flow through our Investment Platform combined with our proprietary deal flow from our Venture Studios – putting us in a position to access the AI opportunity
As entrepreneurs ourselves, we know it takes an experienced 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.
