Better Ventures provides funding and support to technology startups building innovative solutions to big and important problems, from work and education to health and sustainability. Given the magnitude of the these problems and the enormous market opportunities they represent, it takes the best and brightest minds armed with the best resources to address them. These are the people we seek to back – entrepreneurs committed to using the tools and methodologies of the modern technology startup to build world-changing companies that make money and do good. We’re thinking big and expecting big results, and so are the entrepreneurs we back.
We back smart and scrappy teams of two or more co-founders building highly scalable and capital efficient models that address big global challenges. We look for significant and measurable impact potential that is created directly through the use of a company’s products or services or through the supply chains that produce and deliver them. We are currently pursuing opportunities in three investment themes:
Low-cost web & mobile technologies provide individuals with access to life-improving opportunities
Always-on connectivity and cloud analytics enable improved diagnosis and better preventative health
Technology-driven innovations are accelerating the transition to a more sustainable economy
