Note from BootstrapLabs

Founded in 2008, BootstrapLabs is a leading Venture Capital firm based in Silicon Valley and focused on Applied Artificial Intelligence. We invest in founders that dream big and are solving today’s hardest problem by applying artificial intelligence to shape a better future.

BootstrapLabs is often the first institutional money and acts as a lead investor in the early stages, with follow-on capital at the growth stages.

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.


We took this approach, because we know that it improves the likelihood of success – we have built companies to both failure and success, our team has over 75 years of combined experience building, financing, scaling, and selling software companies. We are entrepreneurs, investors, and advisors that started building AI technology in the 90’s and continued throughout the last two decades.

In late 2015, BootstrapLabs made the bold decision to focus its investment thesis on Applied Artificial Intelligence and today, BootstrapLabs has acquired an unrivaled experience, reputation and reach in the Applied AI space, allowing it to provide its founders with an unfair execution advantage in the form of capital, operational experience, pattern recognition, and, more importantly, access to its incredible community of Applied AI thought leaders for inspiration, advice, mentorship, hiring, thought leadership development, marketing, corporate development, fundraising, and exits.
