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 email@example.com
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:
Earlier this year, Betaworks kicked off THINKCamp, our latest accelerator program focused on the Tools for Thinking Category. We brought in a cohort of 9 stellar companies building software aimed at helping people think, ideate, create, and share information better. In late 2022, each company presented live demos to a room full of investors, tech enthusiasts, and fellow builders.
Backing companies using new technologies - ranging from large language models and generative AI to graph databases to high fidelity spatial user interfaces – to create real tools for thinking.
Betalab is an early-stage cohort-based investment program combined with a year-long series of workshops and events at Betaworks — with the singular goal of catalyzing startup activity around Fixing The Internet.
We called out into the soundscape looking for the best entrepreneurs, builders, and creatives working on companies defining the future of audio- and voice-first tech.
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.
Startups defining the future of how we interact with and through live platforms
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.
Voicecamp was designed to support early-stage companies working at the forefront of conversational software, but those related to voice-based applications and services. Betaworks partnered with the Google Assistant and GE for the program.
