A Betaworks Accelerator Program for Tools for Thinking
THINKCamp is our Fall 2022 Camp program aimed at pre-seed companies and products building in the Tools for Thinking space. We're excited to bring together a cohort of 8-10 early companies who want to learn, build, and grow alongside one another for 10 weeks from early October to mid December, at Betaworks' office in New York City.
Participants will receive 1-on-1 mentorship time; tailored programming, events, and activities; collaborative opportunities with other cohort companies and builders in our network, and a total investment of $350k from Betaworks Ventures and our friends at Lux Capital and Bloomberg Beta.
For any other questions, feel free to send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org
Betaworks Camp is a thematic investment and in-residence program for startups building in frontier technologies.
Each camp consists of three months “in-residence” at Betaworks to help early stage companies with product development, platform strategy, data science, branding, and fundraising. Entrepreneurs have access to the Betaworks team, its network and to a carefully curated group of industry leaders to assist with both general company-building needs and with topics specific to each theme. Each camp company receives pre-seed funding of $250k.
Past themes have ranged amongst privacy tech, natural language processing, computer vision, synthetic audio & video, and generative AI. Camp companies have gone on to raise over $100M in funding from leading investors:
We were beginning to see both research and real-world examples of a certain type of AI, generative adversarial networks (GANs), being employed to create or manipulate images, audio, video and text and do so in increasingly realistic ways. Our call was for early-stage teams building in this space.
With the ubiquity of cameras and motion sensors, and the advent of computer vision technology, we were investigating what it means for a camera to not only capture its environment, but to be able to understand and augment what it is looking at.
