Camp

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:
