2048 Ventures is a thesis-driven earliest stage venture capital firm. We are founders, experienced operators, nerds and dreamers obsessed with the future. We've backed over 200 startups and have the experience and conviction to lead your pre-seed.
We get you and your vision before others
We are systems thinkers, engineers, and product junkies. We think about the future non-stop and are ready to understand and back you before anyone else. When we decide to invest, we write you a check and then help you close the rest of the round.
If you are a mission-driven team, with strong founder market-fit and a vision for what the future should look like, then we would love to meet you. We love serial founders, but we are also very excited about being the first to believe in underdogs, immigrants, and diverse founders who are going on their first founder journey.
We are not your typical pre-seed firm
We are a thesis-driven investor and invest in next generation platforms — APIs, data, infrastructure, marketplaces, and specific types of vertical SaaS.
We invest across verticals, but spend most of our time thinking about: biotechnology, digital health, AI/ML, Robotics, AR/VR, Blockchain, Security, Energy, Mobility, Logistics, Fintech, Marketplaces, Productivity, Culture, and Communities.
We don't care where you are based and we are happy to lead your pre-seed anywhere in North America. We've invested across 20+ cities including NYC, LA, Boston, Toronto, Austin, Denver, Seattle, Montreal, Atlanta, Detroit, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Minneapolis.
Who we are
We are a team of experienced operators and dreamers who are passionate about working with founders at the earliest stage. Collectively, we have invested in over 200 early stage startups. We are proud to have an NPS score of 100 from our founders.
