Founded in 2008, Betaworks is a company of builders. Betaworks is a network of ideas, people, capital, products and data brought together to build businesses. As builders, they seek to create a more sustainable innovation model.
Betaworks is structured as a company-- a single company that owns larger pieces of the things it has built and smaller pieces of the things it has invested in. Betaworks makes seed-stage investments in this ecosystem. To them, seed investing means "first money in." Their typical investment size is $150,000-200,000. They always invest as part of a syndicate of angels and early stage venture capital firms. They prefer investments to be early stage, heavily technology focused, and have a working (public or private) prototype.
