Head of MarCom and Community
BootstrapLabs is the first VC firm to build a focused investment strategy to invest in AI-first companies since 2015, and today the AI opportunity is bigger and more exciting than ever.
We see a large opportunity to address large and important opportunities by applying Artificial Intelligence and we both invest and empower entrepreneurs to build companies to do so.
Through our Venture Capital funds, Venture Studios, and growth-stage investment models we are investing in Artificial Intelligence applied to The Future of Work (FoW)/Productivity, Mobility, Health, Finance, Cybersecurity, and Energy/Climate.
Venture Capital acts as an engine for economic growth (0.2% of the US economy – but drives 27 % of job & GDP growth) and we believe the Venture Capital industry itself will see more innovation and transformation in the next 10 years than we have seen since the inception of this industry.
15 years ago the Venture Capital industry was “the man behind the curtain” – today marketing is an essential part of any Venture Capital endeavor – BootstrapLabs’ approach has been to build a community model to drive access to deal flow, talent and commercial opportunities for its investment thesis.
Today BootstrapLabs has built one of the largest communities in the Artificial Intelligence space, and we source over 1,000+ qualified investment opportunities every year, reach 40,000+ people and arrange one of the leading conferences with-in Artificial Intelligence.
Combined with our top quartile VC funds, BootstrapLabs is in position of being the leading Venture Capital firm in the AI space.

Artificial Intelligence is impacting every single sector and we are particularly excited about Transportation, Logistics, Energy, the Future of Work (FoW), Cybersecurity, Internet of Things (IoT), Health, and FinTech.
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.
Ultimately we believe technology should always be used to create a positive impact on society, and that founders should always place fellow humans at the heart of their vision.
