Specializing in machine intelligence, Bloomberg Beta is an early-stage venture capital firm that’s investing in the future of work by responding to the profound changes in the way businesses function. The fund exists to expand the horizons of its investor, Bloomberg LP, by investing in companies for a financial return while bringing the worlds of technology, business, culture and the public sector together.
Bloomberg Beta is run in unorthodox ways, with the fund experimenting with the limits of transparency by making their entire operational manual open-sourced. Success is measured by their founders’ customer service ratings and their investing model allows anyone on the team to say yes to a deal, with an equal male-to-female ratio in the partnership. They seek to bring transparency to markets and achieve a global scale, with a strong and open culture that embraces technology and all its potential.
Bloomberg Beta has its headquarters in San Francisco and additional offices in New York City. To date, the VC has invested in companies like AngelList, MasterClass and Slack while being recognized as one of the leading investors in artificial intelligence by VC review site CB Insights.
