AI Fund is a venture studio that works with entrepreneurs to build companies rapidly and increase the odds of success. We aspire to play the role of a minor co-founder. 

Through our deep bench of AI pioneers, operators, and entrepreneurs, we speed up market validation, provide deep technical expertise, contribute comprehensive business support, and recruit a strong core team through our extensive AI ecosystem.


We know that building an AI company requires overcoming unique challenges, and we want to support you with technical, operational and business expertise on your journey. Our focus is in the earliest stages of a startup (seed, pre-seed, and even pre-pitch deck) where we hope our help can make the biggest difference.

To build the next generation of tech giants, your team will require both industry know-how and AI expertise. We can help bring together and support the right team under your leadership, with the common goal of tackling the largest markets.


Artificial intelligence is the new electricity. As electricity revolutionized the world and ushered in the Second Industrial Revolution, so AI is radically transforming the economy and the world.. We support entrepreneurs in building companies that will execute world-changing AI projects to move humanity forward.

Important new businesses need to be created to impact difficult problems in a variety of areas. We are open to all kinds of AI solutions across any industry. Our portfolio spans sectors as diverse as healthcare and financial services, supply chain logistics and education.

The AI tech stack consists of several layers, spanning hardware, cloud computing infrastructure, developer tools for building applications, and the applications themselves. Most of our portfolio companies fall in the application layer, although we also co-found infrastructure and developer tool companies when we believe we have a unique technology advantage. 


Bringing a company from 0 to 1 is one of the hardest things a person can do (having done that numerous times, many of us at AI Fund understand that well) and it’s even harder to bring a company from 0 to 1 fast.

We offer a streamlined company-building process, including technical validation, business advice, connection to subject matter experts, rapid recruitment, and operational excellence so founders can focus on product/market fit. With this support, founders can build their companies within the nurturing space of an AI ecosystem that spans a range of industries.

With AI Fund being a minor co-founder, we don’t only comment from the sidelines; we’ll be right there with you, supporting at each step of the way.

Let’s build together.


Andrew was ideating with me, diving deep into the problem area. He was a great mentor. When I was starting out, AI Fund gave a lot of help with recruitment strategy, particularly around data science, which was really helpful. It’s one of the most difficult things when you’re a startup, but building a team quickly is also one of the most urgent things. There’s also been this sense working with AI Fund that there’s no question too small to ask.
