    About Us

    Founded in 2007, betaworks is a company of builders. A tightly linked network of ideas, people, capital, products and data brought together in imaginative ways to build out a more connected world. First and foremost we're builders seeking to create a more sustainable innovation model. The more we build, the more we learn and the more ideas we get for peripheral projects.

    betaworks is structured as a single company that owns larger pieces of the things it has built and smaller pieces of the things it has invested in. It operates as a network: a tightly linked network of ideas, people, capital, and data united to build out a more inspired and useful connected world. betaworks makes seed-stage investments in this ecosystem. To us, seed investing means "first money in." Our requirements from an investment perspective are simple: investments must be early stage, heavily tech focused, and have a working (public or private) prototype. We are a powerpoint-free zone.
