Investment Expertise

Machine learning

From post-deployment monitoring and observability to data tooling and deep learning, machine learning is changing the way we work. Learn more about what we are betting on with emerging trends in AI.

Cybersecurity

As technology and society evolve, securing companies and their customers from threats continues to be a challenge. As an example of our investment thesis in cybersecurity, here’s why we invested in Traceable.

New-age SaaS

Companies need to work smarter and faster today than ever before while adapting to a distributed, remote-friendly culture. They are buying SaaS tools that are data-first, easy to use, and work seamlessly with the rest of their stack. To learn more about our approach to new-age Saas, check out why we bet on Endgame.

Dev tools

Developers are the key decision makers of how software companies should build products. Empowering them with the tools they need to be productive is paramount. Learn more about our focus on tools for builders with our investment in CoScreen.

Fintech 3.0

The companies that dominate the world of finance today are still incumbents that started 50+ years ago. At Unusual, we see a massive opportunity for new fintech infrastructure that modernizes the industry and makes sophisticated finance accessible to all. To learn more about our interest in fintech, check out our investment in Alto.

Mega marketplaces

In a digital-first world, marketplace businesses seamlessly match demand and supply to make sure that no creator or small business is at a disadvantage. As an example of our approach to investing in marketplaces, learn why we bet on Contra.
